Last night, we helped a Jewish Family return to a portion of a property that Jews were forced to flee from 80 years ago. They are the newest Jewish Family in the "muslim quarter" of the Old City of Jerusalem. But not for long, many more to come!

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!

What our guests are saying!

Here is more of what has happened since the last update! Sorry we're too busy with Birthright guests to write more.
