When Emmy-award winning Hollywood director Rob Schiller was appointed to the Jewish National Fund (JNF) Los Angeles board of directors, he vowed to make a significant contribution through his generous support and active involvement. A well-known American film and television director and president of R&B JAAMZS, Inc., Schiller continues his family heritage of steadfast participation with the Jewish National Fund.
In December, Schiller served as table captain at the Jewish National Fund Annual Breakfast event, which drew a crowd of more than 1,200 people to hear guest speaker H.E. Ron Proser, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations and Consul General David Siegel. The mood among the attendees from the Los Angeles community was electrifying, especially when Ambassador Proser said that JNF should stand for “Jumpstarting our Nation’s Future.”
“Our Los Angeles JNF Board views the new year as filled with opportunities for success,” said Mark Egerman, JNF President. “We expect to exceed all of our projected goals and expand our commitment to Israel. JNF is very excited to have Rob Schiller join our Board. With Rob’s experience and leadership, he will help us seize the future for the people of Israel.”
This month, Schiller is participating in the Jewish National Fund’s LA Guy’s Night Out at Staples Center where the Los Angeles Clippers take on the Orlando Magic. The evening features a night of fun watching an exciting basketball game from a luxury suite along with a Kosher dinner.
Schiller has already marked his calendar and invited friends to play in the upcoming 24th Annual JNF Golf Classic to be held at the Sherwood Country Club on Monday, May 12, 2014, and is looking forward to participating in the 2014 JNF National Conference in September among other monthly activities.
“I made a commitment to the Jewish National Fund that I would increase my personal involvement and be major supporter of JNF’s valuable projects in this region,” said Schiller. “I encourage my industry colleagues to join me in ensuring that the legacy of the JNF endures so together we can continue meaningful work in Israel.”

About Jewish National Fund
Jewish National Fund began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.
JNF embodies both heart and action; our work is varied in scope but singular in benefit. We strive to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.
