Building New Communities

Together with its Friends worldwide, KKL-JNF builds new communities and expands existing ones, attracting young and vibrant people to boost the Negev and the Galilee.

Throughout its history, KKL-JNF has been vital in the establishment and development of over 1000 communities all over Israel. Today, KKL-JNF continues to play a central role in creating and supporting veteran and new communities alike. Community development is much more than creating the physical base for housing. It is about enhancing the quality of life by creating urban and rural parks, developing projects that lead to greater employment and creating agricultural infrastructure, all of which bring economic viability to newly developed areas.
The high population density in the center of the country, the accompanying strain it places on public services, quality of life and the environment, has led the government of Israel to declare the development of Israel's northern and southern regions to be one of its highest priorities, with KKL-JNF playing a major and varied role in this endeavor.
