    THE ENVIRONMENT, ISRAEL, POLITICS
    The Jewish National Fund
    Rebuild forests in devastated northern Israel! Planting a single tree – or a whole forest – in northern Israel through the Jewish National Fund is a terrific way to help rebuild the 1,500 acres of forests and 2,500 acres of grazing lands that have been devastated from Hezbollah rocket fire. One million trees now need to be replanted. You can also let people know you’re planting trees in their honor on your invitations or thank you cards.

    CHILDREN, MEDICAL RESEARCH, ISRAEL
    The Alyn Hospital

    Support Israel's Only Pediatric and Adolescent Rehabilitation Hospital! The Alyn Hospital in Jerusalem is the only one of its kind in Israel; about 5,000 children and adolescents visit each year needing care and rehabilitation for congenital disorders, neuromuscular diseases, respiratory ailments and "acquired disorders" such as traumas and burns.

    POLITICS, ISRAEL
    Operation Security Blanket
    Build secure roads in Israel! The Jewish National Fund started building secure roads in Israel after it pulled out of Lebanon in 2000. Now they’re continuing that campaign along the border with Gaza. But the work, part of a larger campaign called Operation Security Blanket, is expensive: new roads can cost up to $1 million per kilometer.

Five days a week, from 8:30 until 12:00 in the morning, 270 elderly and disabled come to Yad LaKashish where they work in a variety of handicraft workshops, including bookbindery, ceramics, needlework, hand-made paper, silk-painting and metalwork. The elderly craftspeople receive on-the-job training and supervision in producing beautiful, high quality Judaica and craft items. In return for their work, the artisans at Yad LaKashish receive a monthly stipend and a wide range of social benefits including dental and eyeglass subsidies.
