Pipes Bridge in Be’er Sheva River Park
Larry Monkarsh was raised to support Israel. At his Bar Mitzvah, the candle lighting ceremony was replaced by a map of Israel, and he presented his friends and family Jewish National Fund tree certificates. A member of the Las Vegas Board of Directors, Larry served as Board President and has been involved in JNF Las Vegas for 20 years. He is most proud of the work JNF did in the Israeli city of Be’er Sheva: “JNF literally redeveloped a city and changed the landscape of Israel.”
Larry considers himself part of a generation that was born into a world where Israel has been in existence, something we almost take for granted. He cannot imagine a world without Israel, and he says it’s our duty to serve as its caretakers. In fact, he has been to Israel five times and plans to go back every two years.
Larry is married to Glenda Monkarsh, and the Monkarsh clan includes four daughters and one son. Larry is the owner of LM Construction Co., a full service design-build general contractor licensed in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho. Larry serves on the Executive Board of Temple Beth Sholom.
Jewish National Fund would like to graciously thank Larry and his family for their dedication and generosity. We are proud to honor him at our upcoming Love of Israel Brunch on Sunday, February 11, 2018. New York Times Op Ed Columnist Bret Stephens is our keynote speaker and will talk about the media and Israel.
