The Jewish National Fund of Canada – Manitoba/Saskatchewan Regional Branch is thrilled to announce its 2019 Negev Gala Honouree: Steven Schipper, former Artistic Director of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre.
Beit Halochem’s newest Centre in Israel is the JNF project that Schipper has chosen to support.
Thanks to Schipper, JNF will help build Beit Halochem Ashdod. The centre will serve almost 7,000 disabled veterans, as well as victims of terror, who are living in that region of the country. Together with their families, more than 15,000 people will benefit from access to this state-of-the-art facility in Ashdod.
The Negev Gala will be held on Monday, May 27, 2019, at Centennial Concert Hall.
