What is Zionism and what does it mean to JNF UK?
The State of Israel was founded in 1948. Zionists committed to the political work of establishing a state achieved their goal. But Zionism as a philanthropic activity did not lose momentum. Zionists committed to projects of philanthropy for the benefit of the State’s inhabitants (land reclamation, community building, and the relief of poverty) have yet to achieve their goals – though great progress has been made. For JNF UK, Zionism in the philanthropic sense remains central to its aims.
