We had an AMAZING Shavuos holiday at the Jerusalem Heritage House. Packed house with "lone soldiers" and Birthright Israel extenders, various Jewish educational opportunities throughout the Old City, festive dairy meal, and prayers at the Kotel HaKatan (the "Little Western Wall).
Here is more of what has happened since the last update! Sorry we're too busy with Birthright guests to write more.
Celebrated Yom Yerushalayim
Old City Tour
Donated new prayer books to the Jewish Community of "Sde Boaz" in Gush Etzion. Thanks to Mr. Alec Rubenstein for sponsoring.
Mazel tov to Meir ben Alexander, former "lone soldier" and long time resident, on his engagement to Shlomit Bondarchuk!
Sent some of our "lone soldiers" to a professional basketball game in Jerusalem - sponsored by "Yashar LaChayal"
Meeting Birthright Israel groups in the Old City!
Our previously secret mission is now able to be made public. We actively participated in the entrance and renovation of a property purchased by Jewish investors that was previously owned by Christian Arabs in the Gush Etzion area.
