Hesed

Hesed image

“You came back!” the Israeli hospital worker said in surprise. “Of course we did. We are your friends,” our Hesed volunteer explained. Friendship is the theme of Hesed, our adult volunteer trip to Israel. Each spring, adults from all over the world go to Israel to serve the Jewish people for two and a half weeks. They gladly clean and work on projects around the hospital, while making lasting friendships with the Israeli people.

Hesed members always leave Israel with a deep love for the Jewish people and a desire to return, which some do year after year. If you are unable to go on the trip, you can send someone to love the Jewish people on your behalf!

ORIGINS

ORIGINS image

For 10 years, The Friends of Israel has taken young adults to Israel on our ORIGINS trips to serve the Jewish people. Year after year, God raises up a group of young people to spend a month in Israel to volunteer at a hospital. The work is not easy, but our young adults go to show their support for Israel.

After the trip, our volunteers return home forever changed, and, most importantly, lovers of Israel and the Jewish people. You can sponsor a young adult to go on this trip.

Institute of Jewish Studies

The Institute of Jewish Studies (IJS) courses are available online for anyone with a computer and Internet access. IJS can equip pastors and church leaders to reach and teach people all over the world.

We aim to equip Christians by enabling them to study God’s Word in depth with others through an online format. Several of our students are lay pastors and leaders who are trying to juggle family, work, and leading a church. You can provide a scholarship for a student in need.

Israeli Children's Camps

Israeli Children's Camps image

Israelis strive to raise their children to be free from fear. Even though parents know danger is always near, they want to provide their children with normal childhoods. And what is more normal than summer camp?

Every year, congregants of Rehovot Messianic Assembly in Israel take a group of young people to summer Bible camp. At camp, young people enjoy Bible teaching and fellowship with their peers.

But many families do not have extra income to send their children. For $140, you can sponsor an Israeli child to attend summer Bible camp for a week.

Russian Children's Camps

“Thank you!” That’s the expression our workers in Russia and Poland hear all week from Jewish children who attend children’s camp. The children joyfully sing songs, learn Bible stories, play games, and learn of God’s everlasting love in camp.

Many of them have experienced hardships we will probably never suffer in our lifetime. That’s why their smiles and simple expressions of gratitude are worth a thousand words.

You can help send a Jewish child to camp for $300 or share the cost with someone.

Living Bridges

Anti-Semitism is spreading in Europe today much like it did 80 years ago. Our workers in Poland are actively teaching against it and coming alongside the Jewish people in friendship.

Living Bridges, one of our programs in Poland, sends young people to the Land of Israel. This program functions much like our North American ORIGINS program: Young people serve the Jewish people and experience the life-changing impact of a trip to the Holy Land. They see how the Jewish people live and thrive in their own land and strive for peace. Polish young adults return home forever changed and as true friends of Israel.

If you would like to help stop the growth of anti- Semitism in Europe, you can sponsor a young adult’s trip to Israel.
