Yosef Abramowitz is running out of time. With only minutes to go until he has to speak to a group of donors at the Jewish National Fund (JNF), Abramowitz looks like he just finished a workout.

Israeli entrepreneur Yosef Abramowitz will be featured as an environmental pioneer on the CNN series "Going Green."
