Israel Forever

Shalom friends,

The birthday of the world is upon us with Rosh HaShanah beginning Wednesday, September 20th at sundown.

Rosh HaShanah is a time of reconnecting with ourselves and with each other. In Israel, the chagim - חגים are a national celebration for religious and secular alike.

Israel Forever is here to help you add Israel to your holiday preparations.

The Israel Forever Foundation develops and promotes opportunities to help you bring Israel into your Chagim.
