JNF's Successful Breakfast for Israel 2016

Sept 19, 2016

Presented by the Jewish National Fund, Manitoba& Saskatchewan Region


Chaired by Michael Silver, JNF Manitoba & Saskatchewan Vice President, the extremely successful event drew attendees from all ages and backgrounds: young families with children, comprised of old time Manitobans and newcomers to Manitoba, and old time JNF supporters. All enjoyed the breakfast prepared by Marilyn, Camp Massad’s long-time legendary cook, and her staff. 


We were delighted that among the attendees were three past Negev Gala Honourees and their wives:  Joe Wilder and Phyllis Pollock (Negev Gala Honouree 2014), Bob and Shirley Freedman (Negev Gala Honouree 2015) and Peter and Karen Leipsic (Negev Honouree 2016). Also in attendance were James Bezan MP for Selkirk Interlake, Jeff Wharton MLA, Gimli and Andrew Smith, MLA Southdale. 


While enjoying their meal people heard a presentation by  Itay Tavor, Spokesperson and Head of Public Diplomacy at the Embassy of Israel in Canada. Before becoming a Diplomat at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Itay was a Journalist and TV Producer of political and economic magazine shows for Channel 10 and other media outlets in Israel. His arrival to our country couldn't have been more timely.His superb communication and diplomatic skills will help our organization and the Jewish Communities in Canada to educate the public and make the case for Israel.


This year’s net proceeds generated from the event will be directed to the development of a Children and Youth Centre in Bnei Netzarim, Halutza. Located on the border with Gaza and Egypt, Bnei Netzarim was founded by Gush Katif evacuees after the disengagement of Israel from Gaza in 2005. These pioneers understand the importance of the Negev and have their roots deep in the sand. With the help of JNF, this barren land has begun to prosper. 


JNF would like to thank our proud sponsors for their support of Breakfast for Israel 2016. 

The event ended in a high note with Ariel Karabelnicoff JNF Executive Director along with Camp Massad Counselors led by Sari Waldman singing along with everyone popular Israeli songs.


JNF would like to thank all of the participants for making Breakfast for Israel such a “heimish” gathering.




Breakfast for Israel was created as a way to continue to engage those that either spend their summers at the lake or just love to get away from the city when the mercury reaches the high 20s and 30s. 

This is a casual event where attendees are encouraged to come with shorts, flip-flops and sundresses. The breakfast consists of an assortment of salads, baked goods and other Israeli foods that is served family style in a kibbutz atmosphere.
