Purim at the Heritage House A Tremendous Success!

As I am sure you can imagine, purim is a wild and crazy time in Israel.  Everyone you see is in an amazing costume, everyone is so into the Purim spirit!  At the Jerusalem Heritage House we celebrated purim in full fashion complete with costumes and plenty of amazing food.  Here are just a few of the photos from Purim and the amazingness that came out from it:

Started things off with a Purim night meal on the roof over looking the Old City!

Hands On In Israel

Hands On In Israel

Posted by , With 0 Comments, Tags: , ,

The Heritage House continues to be involved in projects around the country to help develop and assist in building up our land!  We are currently working hard excavating an Ancient Synagogue in Hevron and are making serious progress.  We are hoping to finish around Pesach so everyone who comes to Israel for the holiday can come and visit!

We still need your help funding the last leg of the project.  We are looking for someone to (co)sponsor the entire project for a total of $400 (we got an anonymous $100 donation yesterday, yay!). Sponsorship will include cost of labor, tools, transportation, water and food, and a very nice sign proclaiming the presence of the Ancient Synagogue! This is how far we've come:

Even our guests' visiting parents pitch in!

Lone Soldiers

Lone Soldiers

Posted by , With 0 Comments,

The Jerusalem Heritage House is very fortunate and proud to assist “lone soldiers” serving in the Israeli army. “Lone soldiers” are those IDF soldiers whose families reside outside of Israel. We provide them with housing, meals, laundry facilities (very important!), Shabbos and Holiday meals and activities, military advisors, supplies, and LOVE AND SUPPORT!

 

There are over 50 current and former guests serving as “lone soldiers” in the Israeli army. The Jerualem Heritage House always makes sure they have a warm and loving place to stay before, during and after their service.


To support all Israeli soldiers in the field right now, we have partnered with another organization that is doing an amazing job of this - Yashar LaChayal - http://www.yasharlachayal.org/
