INITIATIVE FOR
ZIONIST INNOVATION

YOUR IDEA. YOUR IMPACT. YOUR COUNTRY.

Zionist activists and innovators changed the face of Jewish history over the last 120 years. Nefesh B’Nefesh was founded in the same spirit and is now seeking the next generation of activists and innovators looking to contribute to this story we’ve all chosen to join. This initiative strives to support entrepreneurial Olim committed to social and/or business innovation within the spirit of Zionism.

The Zionist story is one where dreams are brought to life.
Make it happen.

Nefesh B’Nefesh and IZI deeply appreciate the generous support & leadership of  Avram and Sharon Blumenthal and Family
