A promise today for Israel’s tomorrow

The continued well-being of the Jewish people and the land of Israel is vital to us all.

One of the most significant ways that you can show your support for Israel is to leave a gift in your Will to JNF Australia. Your love of Israel will be reflected for generations to come.

JNF Australia performs work in Israel covering areas such as community development, education and training, ecology and afforestation, research and development, water management and social welfare.

“We wanted to make a personal, lasting commitment to Israel and the Jewish people by leaving a bequest in our Wills.” – Andrew and Bella Strauss

Our promise to you

JNF takes pride in ensuring that your memory is honoured both in Australia and Israel. Individuals who leave a gift in their Will are remembered in the following ways:

  • Kaddish is said and your name displayed in perpetuity during the month of your Yahrzeit in the President’s Synagogue in Jerusalem.

  • Your Name is remembered every year in our monthly Yahrzeit notice in the Australian Jewish News as well as other relevant community publications.

  • If you leave a gift of $18,000 or more, a plaque can be inscribed with your name (and your loved ones if you choose) in a Yahrzeit memorial area in Israel to acknowledge your support.

How to leave a gift in your Will

  • A residual bequest – You can leave all or a percentage of the remainder (residue or balance) of your Estate to JNF.

  • A percentage of your Estate – You can leave a nominated portion or fixed percentage of your Estate to JNF.

  • A special bequest – You can leave a specific sum of money or an item of value to JNF, such as property, shares, bonds, managed funds, jewellery or works of art. You can also leave the proceeds of a life insurance policy or superannuation benefit to JNF.
