That the Generation to Come Might Know…

Psalm 78 outlines the mandate to raise up the next generation and teach them to put their hope in God. Hope for Israel, directed by Moran Rosenblit, is a ministry on the frontlines in Israel, responding to this very call.

“The vision of Hope for Israel is to proclaim the Kingdom of God to Israel through direct discipleship and acts of kindness and mercy, striving to be the hands and feet of the Messiah and extend His love to those in need.”

Their passion to effectively mentor and disciple the youth of Israel is changing lives every day. From high school, to the military, and all the way through university & beyond, Hope for Israel is present and available for the young believers in the Land.

Part of raising up the next generation is investing in the integrity and health of the family. Hope for Israel is a service and resource-providing ministry that aims to bring the hope of the Messiah back to Israel. Since the year 2000, God has built this ministry to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people of Israel and the body of believers in the Land.

The Body of Messiah in Israel is a very diverse community with many different needs. As those who follow Yeshua, we are commanded to reflect His love and compassion, both in word and in deed. The staff and volunteers at Hope for Israel make it their aim to consistently invest in believers representing many backgrounds, and to strengthen and edify the Body of Messiah in Israel through prayer and encouragement coupled with tangible acts of mercy and benevolence. Hope for Israel serves local Jewish and Arab believers through a variety of different humanitarian projects.

“We extend Yeshua’s hand of mercy to families struggling to put food on the table. Through two massive food distribution projects a year, as well as helping families with groceries as the need arises, we are helping to meet a growing need in Israel.”

“If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” James 2:15-17

The cost of living in Israel is steep and salaries can be quite low. Many families struggle just to meet daily needs and often need a helping hand just to make ends meet each month. Hope for Israel provides practical resources in the love of Yeshua.

“We want to help fellow believers who struggle to make ends meet, regardless of their background. Whether buying groceries, helping to pay rent or utility bills, or purchasing school supplies & textbooks, we are giving tangible expressions of Yeshua’s love to our brothers and sisters in faith.”

True to their name, Hope for Israel is meeting a very real need in Israel today: providing hope. Many believers in Israel, both Jewish and Arab, suffer harassment and increased persecution for their faith in Yeshua. This can include being ostracized from family or friends, losing jobs or income, dealing with unreasonable legal ‘red tape’ or even experiencing acts of violent resistance or damage to property. Hope for Israel is a support network in these situations, providing financial aid and spiritual encouragement to strengthen the arms of persecuted believers.

Hope for Israel also provides resources for current and timely news updates concerning Israel, providing daily prayer alerts, Bible teachings, and weekly blogs.
