A few weeks ago, I personally visited some of the communities in Samaria, to get an update on their needs and to gain a first-hand perspective on how your support has helped them. It was a wonderful opportunity to drive through the mountains I love and visit with the leaders and ordinary residents that represent the heartbeat of this land.
We cannot change the past nor bring back the dead. But we can encourage and strengthen the living. We can reach out to the brave men, women and children of Judea and Samaria and give them what they need, when they need it. I hope you will help us help them. I hope you will continue to partner with us as we strengthen the Jewish presence in the Biblical Heartland.
Aliyah’s story begins five years before she was born. Her parents, Avital and Michael Ezer were a young newly married couple in Soviet Russia. They were respected researchers in their fields and had big plans for the future when in 1980; they submitted a request to immigrate to Israel. Their request was denied, and as was the case for all families who requested to move to Israel at that time, their application triggered government persecution. They were targeted, interrogated and then watched by the KGB, and they lost their jobs.
