As the Jewish people returned from exile in Persia, Nehemiah encouraged the people to arise, build and resettle the land God gave them. After the Second Temple was destroyed in A.D. 70, the Jews were once again scattered throughout the world, but in their heart was a deep longing to return to the land of their fathers.
Today, Jewish people are returning to their promised homeland in Israel. The Prophet Isaiah foretold of this event in Isaiah 43:5-6, "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;" This modern day miracle in Bible Prophecy provides every bible-believing Christian the unique opportunity to become involved in blessing the nation of Israel.
In Israel, Project Nehemiah helps build relationships between Christians and Jews as the middle wall of partition has been broken down (Ephesians 2:14). Love requires more than words, it requires action. Project Nehemiah is a practical way for all of us to show the love of God to the apple of His eye, Israel (Zechariah 2:8).
Because high inflation has burdened Israel’s limited budget, many basic needs go unattended. Therefore, the needs are great for needy Israelis and especially for many new immigrants from the former Soviet Union, South America, Ethiopia, etc.
In order to meet the needs of these precious Jewish families, Project Nehemiah provides several gifts such as food baskets, blankets and candy cheer baskets. These gifts are sent out from our distribution center and are delivered personally to families in several cities throughout Israel by the Project Nehemiah staff and volunteers.
Shalom from Project Nehemiah!
