Three Bay Area residents were part of the Jewish National Fund’s recent L’Chaim Solidarity Mission to Israel.

The five-day trip in late July was meant to show support for Israel during Operation Protective Edge. The mission included a meeting with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, a visit with soldiers near the Gaza border, and stops in Sderot and Beersheva.

Participants also visited students at Alexander Muss High School, a pluralistic, non-denominational school where students from the United States can spend a year abroad. The school is a JNF partner.

“It was a remarkable trip,” said David Arfin of Palo Alto after returning home. “It was all very quickly organized and everyone involved had to drop everything to go.”

Dayna Titus of Pleasanton, Aaron Needel of Walnut Creek and Arfin were part of a 50-person delegation from around the United States. The trip was open to all JNF donors.

“We wanted to show it’s still safe to be in Israel and show our support,” said Karin Ventura, marketing and communications associate at the JNF office in San Francisco. “The participants were able to actually experience what it was like instead of witnessing it on TV.” — abra cohen
