The Lauder Employment Center’s vision is that the Negev and the Galilee will offer opportunities for personal and professional development in the realm of employment and will be a magnet for young adults and families who will choose to establish their lives in these regions.
The first Lauder Center was established in 2015 in the Negev with the support and vision of Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, and Jewish National Fund USA. In November 2020, Ronald Lauder and JNF-USA opened the Galilee LEC in Akko, hoping to replicate the center’s success in the north.
The Nortech digital platform is a project created by the community, for the community. Over the past three years, our core team, supported by local professionals and entrepreneurs, has voluntarily helped startups to raise funds, has helped tech companies to find suitable human capital and has supported leading tech talent in relocating to the region.
We helped to establish new R&D centers in the Galilee-Golan regions and more than 1,000 found jobs using our system.
To date, more than 300 companies are listed on the Nortech platform and they are available for everyone to connect with.
Jewish National Fund-USA’s strategic vision has been and always will be, to ensure a strong, secure, and prosperous future for the land and people of Israel. Each project, each program, each partnership, is consistent with JNF-USA’s strategic vision–population growth in the north and south, connecting the next generation to Israel, infrastructure development, ecology, forestation, heritage preservation, and more — all for the land and people of Israel.
Jewish National Fund-USA sponsors a wide range of activities aimed at enhancing your relocation. From finding the right community with MAKOM, experiencing the Galilee with Western Galilee Now tourism consortium, tasting and developing food-tech in the North through the Galilee Culinary Institute, and participating in activities with Green Horizons and HaShomer HaChadash. JNF-USA does this in order to encourage people to build their lives in Israel’s frontier.
