Guests of the Heritage House and Heritage House "lone soldiers" celebrate the day Jerusalem was Liberated with a BBQ in true Heritage House style.
Happy Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day)!
Its a very, very busy time in the Old City of Jerusalem these days, with thousands of Jewish students and young Jewish professionals making their way through the streets and pathways on Birthright Israel and other organized programs in search of Jewish connection and identity.
WE ARE HERE TO HELP THEM MAKE THAT CONNECTION!!
We have received official permission to be out in the main square of the Jewish Quarter with a table of literature. We are advertising a vast variety of opportunities for them to connect to their Jewish Heritage!
Guests donate a Book of Ruth to the traditional site of the graves of Ruth and Yishai (Jesse) in Hevron in memory of Police Commander Baruch Mizrachi, who was murdered by Arab terrorists on the eve of Passover. This coming week, we will be embarking on a very ambitious initiative towards our overall restoration project at the site. We will be joined by 40 Jewish college students currently on a trip to Israel. Pictures to come! Please pray for our success and consider sponsoring some of the work (price tag for this phase is $750 Donate Here)
Guests of the Heritage House go to the Funeral of Police Commander Baruch Mizrachi, who was murdered by Arab terrorists on the eve of Passover.
Our guests were able to write a letter in an authentic Torah Scroll and attend the ceremony and festive meal celebrating the completion of the writing of 19 new Torah Scrolls!! Special thanks to Rav Aharon Bina and Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh.
Very happy to be back in Israel after a successful fundraising trip to New York and Toronto! Thank you so much to all those supporting our work with Jewish students, travelers and "lone soldiers" in the holy Old City of Jerusalem and special thanks to the Kalatsky, Hoffman and Nemetz families for hosting me while I was there!
Thanks so much!
