When Al and Fran Sachs were selected to be this year’s Jewish National Fund Tree of Life honorees, they were very surprised. “I said to Seymour Rife (JNF Arizona board president), ‘You’ve got to be mistaken. We haven’t done that much,’ ” says Al. “He said, ‘We’re honoring you for your 33 years of philanthropy in the community.’ ” But contrary to Al’s sentiment, the Sachses have done a lot. Fran is a member of JNF’s Circle of Sapphire, and both are members of the JNF’s Century Society and Negev Society.

Continuing their tradition of philanthropy, the Sachses recently made the lead gift for the Halutza Medical Center, a new project that JNF is raising funds for through its Blueprint Negev campaign to sustainably develop the expansion of new communities in the Halutza region on Israel’s borders with Egypt and Gaza.
