‏Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund hosted over 50 educators, most of them from the US, to participate in the organization's Education Seminars, focusing on exploring Israel, Judaism and Zionism and environmental issues. The Delegation toured Israel from North to South, visited selected heritage sites, met with local educational teams to create new collaborations, and visited significant Jewish sites.

‏Aiming to empower the future generation of leaders, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund hosted a seminar, for the first time in Israel, for haredi educators, most of whom are from the USA. Seminars consist of tours, meetings with the educational systems in Israel, the army, nature and heritage site tours, and creating collaborations between KKL – JNF and teachers from around the world.

‏In the past week, KKL - JNF held educational seminars for teachers who are visiting Israel specifically to learn about the organizations work. About 60 teachers and principals have arrived, and will go on study tours, and various seminars related to the KKL – JNF's Zionist activity in its 120 years of activity.

‏During their time in Israel, teachers learnt about the connection between the climate crisis and Zionism, the Israeli water industry and the KKL - JNF's connection to it. All this with the aim of bringing the educators closer to Israel in general, and to the Zionist activity of the KKL - JNF in particular.

‏Director of Diaspora Zionist Education Department, Education & Community Division, Slomo Benhaim, said: "We are interested in training teachers and principals to work together with KKL – JNF and to use the educational content of the Education and Community Division. In Jerusalem, we intend to strengthen the Zionist identity of teachers in the Diaspora and thus strengthen the connection of students and their families to Israel. "
