September Update! Year Review!

September Update! Year Review!

Posted by , With 0 Comments,

Its been an absolutely incredible year for the Jerusalem Heritage House!

Shana Tova - Happy Jewish New Year from the Old City of Jerusalem!! Its been an incredible year for the Jerusalem Heritage House, with more accomplishments than any newsletter could possibly contain. We had many, many highs throughout the year and the very low moment of losing our "lone soldier" guest Max Steinberg, hy'd, in Gaza. We remain extremely proud of Max and of all of our other "lone soldiers" that served and continue to serve. Many of our guests have made the crucial decision to strengthen their Jewish identity through education and action and some have already established faithful Jewish families that further secure Jewish continuity well into the future. This year we can say with confidence that we have successfully strengthened the Jewish People and the Land of Israel, spiritually and physically!

Accomplishments:

-Over 750 individual guests for the year

-Over 750 individual guests for the year

-Over 100 guests went on to participate in extended programs in Israel (over 50 to Yeshivas)

-Over 120 "lone soldiers" - hosted and visited, including on the Gaza border

-52 Shabbat mincha minyans with Torah reading (Thanks to the Rabinowitz Family)

-Siyum Shas Mishnayos in memory of Max Steinberg, hy'd, our beloved friend and guest, killed while heroically fighting in Gaza

-Over 1000 trees planted

I want to personally thank all of our friends and supporters from the bottom of my heart and bless each and every one for a new year of complete blessing and health.

Many of you I assume have enjoyed the quality of the updates over the past year. This is completely due to the hardwork and dedication of the House Manager, Matt Glassman. There is so much more that he does as well for the House, it can't all be mentioned here, but from making all the Shabbat and holiday meals for the House as well as updating the website, paying bills, you name it, the list goes on and on.

As we say on Rosh Hashanah in the prayers - giving tzedekah has the power to change our entire future, especially in the auspicious time right before Rosh Hashanah. Please remember the Jerusalem Heritage House and the very important work we are doing with future of the Jewish People here in the Old City of Jerusalem. Your generous support is the only way we are able to do what we do!

I am in the midst of planning a trip to the States following the Sukkot holiday, I plan to be in Los Angeles, Arizona, Chicago, Charlotte and New York. Looking forward to seeing as many friends as possible in the New Year!
