Meeting the Residents


You will meet the families that the refurbished bomb shelter will protect, we call this the best part of the "Tour of Duty."

If your organization has a heart for God's people and want to sponsor a shelter, we schedule these "Tours of Duty" in which your group from your organization travels to Israel and participates in the work of renovating the shelter. During this time you have the opportunity to meet the residents, share a good meal, a good conversation, and experience an Israeli Shabbat.

Letter from the children on Hertzel Street:


Dear Shelter Contributors, we the children of the building on Hertzel Street want to thank you very much. Thanks to you we now feel safety, security, comfort and a lot of love. That's what we received from you. We want to bless you, that you will succeed in everything you do. With warm greetings!
We are grateful to you all for your help. We are living in Nahariya on Hertzel Street. We are thankful for your help reconstructing our shelter. Our town, 8km from the Israel-Lebanon border, has suffered under the Hezbollah bombing in the last conflict (July, August 2006). Now, with your generous help, we are in security in our new shelter.
With our warmest thanks, God bless America and Israel.
