Israel Forever

Shalom friends,

The people of Israel are scattered throughout the world. After years of exile in the Diaspora, the birth of a Jewish state has fostered the growth of a community in our ancient homeland.

Lots of different cultures and people with many abilities blend together to make Israel who she is. You are part of the collage. I am part of the collage. In fact, every Jewish person on the face of the planet is part of the collage that is Israel.

Be a part of the mosaic and share your pride as a Virtual Citizen of Israel
