"I had read that Yerucham was a development town from the 1950s, challenged to keep young people or attract new families. When I got there, everything I found surprised me."

YES! ‪#‎California‬ and ‪#‎Israel‬ are meeting to discuss solutions to water issues. The world's problems CAN get a little lighter with thoughtful conversation and informational exchange.
Here's to a more water-filled future.
California is facing a water crisis, and a strong El Nino isn't going to solve the problem. In search of solutions, the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit traveled halfway around the world, to Israel, a country...

Discover the work of JNF: Caretakers of the land and people of Israel
Introduction
Your voice in Israel.
 
In active practice for more than a century, JNF has been faced with a variety of challenges with changing factors and participants. Still, the ultimate goal of JNF's effort remains unwaivered: protect and maintain the land of Israel and its people.
 
Over the past 109 years, JNF has evolved into a global environmental leader by planting 250 million trees, building over 210 reservoirs and dams, developing over 250,000 acres of land, creating more than 1,000 parks, providing the infrastructure for over 1,000 communities, bringing life to the Negev Desert and educating students around the world about Israel and the environment.
 
As Israel grapples with a different kind of threat -- the worst drought to hit the Middle East in 80 years -- JNF continues to build reservoirs throughout the country. Over 200 reservoirs have already been constructed, adding over 66 billion gallons of recycled and flood water to the national water economy, or 10% of the total water supply. This water irrigates over 112,000 acres of crops that would otherwise use up scarce freshwater. By meeting 40% of Israel’s agricultural water needs, JNF reservoirs free up freshwater for domestic consumption. With the launch of the Parsons Water Fund, JNF has committed to raising $100 million through partnerships and private philanthropy to fund 40 additional reservoirs and new water treatment initiatives.

JNF’s cooperation with the United Nations and its agencies included participating in conferences sponsored by UNESCO and the UN Environmental Program. As a global environmental leader focusing on Israel, JNF is committed to the United Nations Millennium Developmental Goals of 2015 and its partnerships with Israel’s neighbors, improving the quality of life for all who live in the Middle East.
