In his statement of greeting, Yehiel Leket, the Chairman of the KKL-JNF Institute for the Study of Zionism and Settlement, noted that the Fund not only helped in producing research on the history of cinema in Israel, but that it had been the primary entity that produced and distributed films during the Yishuv period, for purposes of public relations and fundraising.
So there you have it, a view to the past and to the later years. To fateful decisions, deeds great and small whose one common denominator is the building from which they came – The National Institutions Building in Jerusalem.
Project 2040: Relocation Israel
As we approach the end of the second decade of the 21st century, there is more to tell about KKL-JNF: "Project 2040 – Relocation Israel, KKL-JNF Builds the Country of Tomorrow." This ambitious plan seeks to change the ways of the world in Israel of the next generation.
In order to promote the issue, the heads of KKL-JNF and the presidents of the KKL-JNF offices throughout Europe, met in Paris in June 2019 in order to build a shared vision for the future of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. The conference lasted three days and held discussions on a series of issues that are a high priority for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, such as the security situation and the gap between the Israel's center and its outlying areas, the challenges in the digitized and cyber era and the struggle against anti-Semitism.
During the discussions, KKL-JNF World Chairman Daniel Atar presented "Project 2040." He explained that through this initiative, the organization aspires to focus upon strengthening the next generation by creating high-tech centers in northern and southern Israel and to assist in the creation of economic momentum in these regions. "KKL-JNF knows that strong outlying areas will lead to a stronger Israel," he said.
