"The fund is a new model developed by the Jewish Agency where the local community finances the Israel experiences for the members of their own community," said JAFI Chairman Natan Sharansky.

The Jewish Agency held its Board of Governors outside Israel for the first time in over a decade with the aim of strengthening ties with Jews living in Latin America.
