“At a time like this, when the world is in upheaval, and the present is foggy, we must navigate our way with a single, sharp and clear compass and a vision for a better tomorrow, a tomorrow toward which we can honorably march, as human beings, as Jews, as Israelis.” Thus spoke the President of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres, at the opening of the Presidential Conference in Jerusalem.
The Fourth Presidential Conference, entitled Facing Tomorrow, is a meeting place for world leaders, academics, scientists, artists, clergy, entrepreneurs and representatives of the younger generation of leaders. The Conference includes plenary sessions as well as a variety of panels, roundtables and study forums dealing with a broad spectrum of topics, with the participation of the best minds in every field.
KKL-JNF Booth at Presidential Conference – Wishes for a Greener and Better Future
In the exhibition hall, where diverse organizations were showcasing their work, KKL-JNF set up a unique booth, where visitors were invited to write their wishes for a greener future. The visitors then hung their wishes on trees in the three colors of KKL-JNF—green, blue and brown. Visitors to the booth included KKL-JNF World Chairman Efi Stenzler, who expressed his wish for a greener future.
The tree filled up with wishes very quickly, with personal requests, wishes for Israel and prayers for a better world. Alongside the personal wishes were KKL-JNF’s wishes for realizing its goals in the various fields of its work for the benefit of the citizens of Israel and mankind in general.
