Busy day: taking a lone soldier back to base, picking up some new synagogue furniture for the ancient synagogue in Hevron, seeing another lone soldier in the Old City and guests still working to strengthen the Jewish Presence in Jerusalem! Still not done yet!

Trip and tour with Jerusalem Heritage House guests to Hevron and Judea today!

tour Judea

Outside of the Jewish Community of Karmei Tzur, overlooking the site where the three kidnapped boys were buried by the arab terrorists that killed them. Site still remains undeveloped, hopefully that will change soon! The Jewish books we donated, after the arabs burned all of the books that were there, are still in use!

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!


Visited and donated clothes to the Jewish Community of Neve Tzuf - site of some of the worst damage from recent arson attacks.

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!
