You are reading this because you believe that united Jerusalem is the Jewish People’s rightful home and capital.
You are on the same page with us, making clear that Jews have the moral, historical, and natural right to purchase and live freely in every and any neighbourhood of Jerusalem.
You understand that those who live in the heart of Jerusalem - the Old City and its environs, in close proximity to the Temple Mount - deserve to live there safely. Free from violent neighbors. Free to live peacefully.
Think about a family like Joshua and Rebecca’s. They have four children - three boys and a girl, and live in the Old Yemenite Village of Shiloach (East of the City of David on the southern slopes of the Mt of Olives).
Each time they drive down the narrow alleyways of the Shiloach (Silwan), they fear for their children’s safety. Will there be Arab teenagers throwing rocks at their car? With the double-plated glass windows hold up? What happens if the driver is struck and the car goes into a tailspin?
But you are one of those special people who doesn’t just feel badly for families like Joshua and Rebecca who live like prisoners in their own homes. You act on it!
That’s why your donation to Jerusalem Chai (Ateret Cohanim) is so important. Your donation secures the safety of Jewish residents of areas like the Mount of Olives.
You ensure that Joshua and Rebecca have basic social, educational, and recreational resources to live. You help them show strength of conviction.
Because of you, they will have a preschool and nursery for working parents to send their children.
They will have a rooftop playground with trampolines and seesaws. They will have security equipment surrounding the area so the police are ready at a moment’s notice.
They will be able to raise their children in a safe and loving environment… all thanks to your generosity.
After thousands of years of exile, the Jews are rebuilding Jerusalem using the very stones that once symbolized their destruction. Your investment in Jerusalem Chai, connects our heritage, our history, and our centuries old roots to the Temple Mount, the City of David and Jerusalem in general - with today’s revival of Jewish life in the Holy Basin.
Their neighbors throw Molotov cocktails and preach incitement, terror and hate. But the Jewish residents of the Old City and its environs (Old Jewish Quarter of Old City, old Yemenite Village of Shiloach, Maaleh HaZeitim and Kidmat Zion) are investing in life and their own future. Focusing on their children. Trying their best to live a normal life, in a neighbourhood of some Arab hostility and Moslem fundamentalism.
Your donation means that fathers like Joshua, and mothers like Rebecca can live safely and securely in their legally purchased and rightful homes. Your donation actualizes a 2,000 year old dream of rebuilding our eternal capital, one stone at a time.
Plus, giving to Jerusalem Chai is simply smart philanthropy. That’s because a group of generous donors has agreed to match each and every dollar you donate to this campaign. That means you can DOUBLE your impact in providing for the Jewish families and students living on the front lines, in the heart of Jerusalem.
But this matching offer only kicks in if you give today, by May 14th!
Your donation is an investment in the revival of Jewish life in Jerusalem. Please donate today.
