Mazel Tov to Israeli Astronaut Eytan Stibbe

It is with great pride and excitement that we learned the news of JFN member Eytan Stibbe being named the second Israeli to travel to the International Space Station. Eytan will be traveling on behalf of the Ramon Foundation in partnership with the State of Israel. You can learn more about the mission here.




On behalf of the entire Jewish Funders Network, we would like to congratulate Eytan, a retired fighter pilot and active philanthropist, on the honor he brings to Israel and to Jews around the world. The generosity and vision of his social philanthropic work has always looked beyond borders of countries and chooses to celebrate the human spirit in its essence. Through the notion of Tikkun Olam he provides the basic needs of food and education to children around the world while instilling arts and culture as a universal language to be available to all humanity.

And now he is reaching for the stars!

We are so grateful to have amongst our members such an extraordinary patriot of Israel. All of us at JFN look forward to hearing about his journey to becoming the second Israeli astronaut to fly to space, and we say a collective Birkat HaDerech for his health and success on this landmark voyage.
