Lone Soldiers

 

The Jerusalem Heritage House is very fortunate and proud to assist “lone soldiers” serving in the Israeli army. “Lone soldiers” are those IDF soldiers whose families reside outside of Israel. We provide them with housing, meals, laundry facilities (very important!), Shabbos and Holiday meals and activities, military advisors, supplies, and LOVE AND SUPPORT!

There are over 50 current and former guests serving as “lone soldiers” in the Israeli army. The Jerualem Heritage House always makes sure they have a warm and loving place to stay before, during and after their service.

 To support all Israeli soldiers in the field right now, we have partnered with another organization that is doing an amazing job of this – Yashar LaChayal  

 

Busy day!

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!
