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!

Shalom Everyone,

With your support and encouragement, we are continuing to do amazing things this summer at the Jerusalem Heritage House! Possibly the two biggest challenges facing the Jewish people today are creating strong Jewish personal identity among our youth and combating the global anti-Israel/BDS bias.

We are on the frontline of both these battlefields!

And every battle counts!

We are fighting everyday!

Targeting Christians

 

Due to our continuous (day and night) activity during the summer, fundraising trips are just not possible. Our priority is our guests. However, that doesn't mean we don't really need the support. Please help us continue to make this summer the most inspirational experience our guests from all over the world could ever dream of!

Please consider a monthly donation to help us continue all summer long and beyond. Your support, and only your support, allows us to do all that we are doing!
