ICEJ AID TOUR: Haifa Home for Holocaust Survivors - $50 USD, per person

We warmly invite you to join us on an unforgettable visit to the ICEJ’s Home for Holocaust Survivors. Spend the day learning about Holocaust Survivors in Israel and how Christians have made an incredible impact on their lives by providing a warm home and loving care for them in their old age. Today, some 180,000 Holocaust Survivors live in Israel, however, they are swiftly aging.  The opportunity to meet them, love on them, and hear from them will soon be gone forever. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear about history from the people who lived it. In addition, you will have the opportunity to tour the facilities of the Haifa Home, learn how it was established, and go through a newly opened onsite museum. See and hear firsthand how your gifts and the generosity of Christians has become a symbol of hope and friendship to the people of Israel.

Gush Etzion & the Sound & Light Show - $79 USD, per person

Come and partake in the story of the establishment of Gush Etzion, the region just south of Jerusalem on the way to Hebron where the Patriarchs and Matriarchs are buried. From Biblical times to Israel’s modern history, Gush Etzion has served as an important passageway to the city of Jerusalem. We will view a fascinating sound and light show to the heroic defenders of Gush Etzion in the battle of 1948. In the words of David Ben-Gurion when he declared the establishment of the State of Israel; “if the Jewish Jerusalem exists… it is first and foremost due to the fighters and settlers of Gush Etzion.” We will also celebrate the return of the Jewish people to “the Gush” in 1967.

Ayalon Museum, Rehovot - $79 USD, per person

Step back in history and visit the impressive and historical Ayalon Institute in Rehovot. This secret ammunition factory disguised as part of a kibbutz to fool the British dates back to the 1940s. Jewish people used the factory in their efforts to fight for the independent state of Israel. Organizers went to extreme measures to build and sustain this secret factory within the kibbutz. Between 1945 and 1948, the Ayalon Institute produced more than 2 million 9mm bullets. The area was near a British base. In 1945, the group built structures on the surface that resembled a kibbutz and in about three weeks, they built an entire ammunitions factory eight meters below ground. The factory was about the size of a tennis court. This factory stopped operating in 1948, three years after being built. In 1987, the factory was restored and turned into a museum that is now open to the public.
