 As communities throughout the U.S. face stricter “social distancing” measures, Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA) has launched a suite of interactive Zoom videos to help older members of the community feel connected.
Tuesday’s Zoom call with Emmy‑Award winning actor Hal Linden will feature the screen icon regaling viewers with tales from his storied past. The call will also feature tax tips from JNF-USA’s Planned Giving Department to consider during this turbulent time.

“As senior members of our community stay indoors to protect their health, they may feel disconnected from the outside world,” said JNF-USA Chief Planned Giving Officer, Matt Bernstein. “More than ever before, we want our partners to know that they’re part of the Jewish National Fund-USA family, and families stick together when the going gets tough.”
“Over the past couple of weeks, we have been calling our partners to see how they’re doing and to find out if there’s anything we can do to help them feel connected to their community. Thanks to technology, we can keep our community connected, engaged, and even inspired through interactive video calls with our team, including guest speakers from the U.S. and Israel. Our message to our Jewish National Fund-USA family is clear: if you are feeling lonely or isolated, call or email us – we’re always happy to speak.”
