Where Goes the Money?

Gorenberg, Gershom

Moment Magazine;May/Jun2011, Vol. 36 Issue 3, p20
In this article, the author discusses the national fundraising institutions in Israel. He mentions that the Jewish National Fund (JNF) has allowed only Jews and not Israeli Arabs to lease their real estate while the Jewish Agency can accept donations from overseas and provide services to Jews such as rural development. He argues that the institutions should stop their ties to the government and should serve as an independent organization for all Israeli citizens.
