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.
