Israel Forever

Shalom friends,

The house is ready, the menu set. And now it is our turn to rest and relish the legacy of our ancestors whose freedom we celebrate and inherit.

We, the Children of Israel across the world, come together each in our own homes and yet all together as one to honor this day.

Israel Forever is proud to be a part of your holiday celebration, as we continue to bring the spirit of Israel into your homes, your lives, your hearts.

May your holiday be filled with the Ahavat Yisrael felt 2000 years ago and still today.

Am Yisrael Chai!
