 El Paso native included in top 50 influencer list

“As we celebrate our organization’s 120th anniversary, there is so much that our partners (donors), lay leaders, and professionals have achieved, yet, I arrive in the office every morning enthused by the incredible narrative-changing projects that we continue to work towards for the land and people of Israel.”

Jewish National Fund-USA’s (JNF-USA) Chief Executive Officer and El Paso native, Russell F. Robinson, has been included in The Jerusalem Post’s annual “50 Most Influential Jews of 2020.”

According to The Jerusalem Post, this year’s list strived to showcase the diversity of the Jewish People while highlighting individuals from all walks of life – government, art, medicine, literature, and science.

“I feel honored to be included in this year’s list, however, what this recognition also acknowledges is JNF-USA’s role as the most effective and impactful philanthropic organization in the Jewish world,” said JNF-USA Chief Executive Officer, Russell F. Robinson.

“As we celebrate our organization’s 120th anniversary, there is so much that our partners (donors), lay leaders, and professionals have achieved, yet, I arrive in the office every morning enthused by the incredible narrative-changing projects that we continue to work towards for the land and people of Israel.”

Other notable inclusions on this year’s list include Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Alternative Prime Minister, Benny Gantz; Israeli President Reuven Rivlin; United States Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman; Philanthropist and JNF-USA Chairperson-of-the-Board-Emeritus Ronald S. Lauder; and many others.

Robinson continued: “This recognition feels especially meaningful given the many challenges leaders in the for- profit and non-profit worlds currently face. I’m reminded of the ancient Greek philosopher, Heracleitus, who said ‘change is the only constant in life.’ Those words continue to ring true as we [JNF-USA] ‘pivot to progress,’ ensuring that our movement remains as relevant and impactful as it is today for generations to come.”

JNF-USA is the leading philanthropic organization for Israel that supports critical environmental and nation building activities in Israel’s north and south.

Through its One Billion Dollar Roadmap for the Next Decade, JNF-USA is developing new communities in the Galilee and Negev, connecting the next generation to Israel, and creating infrastructure and programs that support ecology, individuals with special needs, and heritage site preservation.
