Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Hanukkah from the Jerusalem Heritage House in the liberated Old City of Jerusalem. This Hanukkah has been quite a special one, mostly because of all the attacks at the UN and in DC against us even being here.

Not surprisingly, we have responded in Maccabean style:

Chanukiah is ready for the second night in the Ancient Synagogue in Hevron!

A Young boy’s first time putting on tefillin!

A Young boy’s first time putting on tefillin!

Today we participated in a prayer service for a young boy's first time putting on tefillin. Unfortunately, his father couldn't be there because he was brutally murdered in a stabbing attack exactly one year ago.The prayer service was held in the Western Wall Tunnels directly facing the area where the "Holy of Holies" was in the Temple. The festive dancing was held in the plaza of the Western Wall. These are the kind of results that come from irresponsible speeches and misguided UN actions and these are our responses. This young man and his family will faithfully continue their Father's legacy. It was an honor for some of our "lone soldiers" and me to participate in this simcha, especially with everything going on. #notbackingdownevenalittlebit

Shalom Everyone,
Its almost "Birthright Season" and its near the end of the fiscal year as well! We've been very busy (in a very good way!!) with our "lone soldiers" and strengthening the Jewish Presence. Please check out the pics below and consider helping us finish the year financially strong so we can continue our very important work! Your support is appreciated and essential to all that we are doing!

Attended the graduation of our "lone soldiers" from the army ulpan course at "Michve Alon". We brought tasty schwarma with us! Some of the "graduates" have already been accepted to special forces units. We are proud of all of them and will be with them all the way!
