Jane Jozoff, a partner in Donovan’s Steak and Chop House in Phoenix, has been named a trustee of the Friends of the Arava Institute of Newton Center, Massachusetts, by the Jewish National Fund.
Jozoff will be one of 41 board members for Arava. The board has fiscal and operational oversight over the Friends of the Arava Institute, an environmental academic institution that is dedicated to preparing future Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian leaders to cooperatively find solutions to regional and global challenges.
“By having members of different areas and countries work together, they get to share similar goals, which promote understanding and cooperation,” said Jozoff, a member of JNF’s Major Donor President’s and Sapphire societies. “The institutes’s environmental projects benefit a region with many challenges, with abundant, sustainable water being at the top of the list. Meeting the dedicated people involved in this endeavor has brought me confidence that my time and talents will prove valuable and productive.”
Since 2002, the Jewish National Fund has been an official partner with the Arava Institute, raising money for student scholarships as well as funds for a capital campaign to build the campus. JN
