Joseph Wilder



The Jewish National Fund of Canada – Manitoba/Saskatchewan Regional Branch is pleased to announce that Joseph J. Wilder, Q.C. will be the 2014 Negev Gala honouree. The official announcement took place on Sunday, August 11th at the branch’s inaugural “Breakfast For Israel” event, which took place at the Lakeview Resort & Conference Centre in Gimli, Manitoba.

“I am so pleased that Joe Wilder will be our honouree for the 2014 Negev Gala, remarked regional president Karla Berbrayer in front of an appreciative crowd of 120. He has a long list of credentials, with a history of leadership in the Jewish and general community. Joe is very worthy and deserving of this acknowledgement.”
Recently named President of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, Mr. Wilder has an extensive record of national and local community service, including leadership positions with Canadian Jewish Congress, the Canada Israel Committee, the Winnipeg Jewish Community Council, the Winnipeg Football Club, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, and others. He is a former school trustee and is a Senior Partner at the law firm of Wilder, Wilder & Langtry. He has been awarded the Sol Kanee Distinguished Community Service Medal (2008) and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012).
“From my earliest years, the Jewish National Fund has always had an enduring presence for me, stated Wilder. The pishke, the iconic little blue box was a fixture in our home. I am in awe of the remarkable work of the JNF in helping to build the State of Israel and the phenomenal number of projects it has undertaken. That this wonderful organization should choose to recognize me in this way is a single honour that I shall always cherish.”
Founded in 1901, the Jewish National Fund has evolved into a global environment leader, planting over 240 million trees, constructing more than 250 reservoirs & dams and developing over 250,000 acres of land while creating more than 1000 parks and providing stable infrastructure for over 1000 communities.
The Negev Gala has honoured outstanding leaders from within the Winnipeg community since 1953. This gala is the Jewish National Fund’s most important fundraising event of the year. All proceeds generated are directed to environmental research and development projects in the State of Israel.
