History Biographical
The Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemeth Le'Israel) began in 1901, and commenced in Canada in 1906 as a Zionist movement dedicated to redeeming land in Palestine. Its mission to redeem the land of Israel has been steadfast and unwavering, serving as trustee of that land for the Jewish people of the world. In 1948 the first Negev dinner was held in Montreal. The first Negev dinner in Ottawa was held in 1957 as a National Farewell for His Excellency Michael Saul Comay, first ambassador to Canada. Lawrence Freiman was chairman, and Sam Kizell Vice-Chairman. From 1964 onwards, Negev dinners were held in Ottawa on a regular basis. Traditionally, prominent members of the Ottawa community who have contributed to the development and strengthening of both Ottawa and the State of Israel are honoured at these dinners. Occasionally non-Jewish friends of Israel such as Hugh M. Grant and Bob Chiarelli are honoured. In 1990, the annual Negev Dinner was deferred by the JNF until the following year out of recognition of the importance of Operation Exodus by the Ottawa Jewish community. In September of 1990, the Ottawa Jewish Bulletin reported that JNF had embarked on building infrastructure and housing to accomodate Soviet immigrants.
