Rafi ben Danaan is a modern-day Abraham.
And just like our forefather Abraham, Rafi never tried to be great. He just is.
Rafi lives in a hilltop settlement in the Judean Hills near a handful of Arab terrorist cities and villages.
Because of these hotbeds of terrorism, hundreds of Israel Defense Forces soldiers patrol the area near Rafi’s house throughout the year. All day and all night. Protecting the Jewish people.
But Rafi noticed a serious problem…
Rafi began to notice that the IDF soldiers walking through his backyard were sleeping in tents with no running water or electricity. They would suffer from frostbite in the winter and heatstroke in the summer.
He also discovered that many of the soldiers had never even studied the Hebrew Bible! They didn’t understand or even feel the Jewish people’s Biblical connection to the Land of Israel.
Having served in the army in his youth, Rafi knew that the greatest morale booster is when the local civilian population steps up to show they care.
So Rafi stepped up to care…
For months, Rafi battled for permits and miraculously raised the money to build indoor barracks. Next was a fully-stocked canteen where soldiers can relax and get drinks and snacks between operations.
He also began teaching the soldiers about God’s promise of the Land of Israel to the Jewish people.
This education has made a major impact, inspiring IDF soldiers to better care about and protect the Land of Israel from its enemies.
But now, the situation in Israel heating up, the IDF plans on deploying tens of more troops to Rafi’s area.
This has forced Rafi to scramble to collect the funds he needs to buy more food to feed soldiers.
Join Rafi’s Godly mission to provide holy soldiers with food, shelter, and Bible study.
This is God’s call to the rest of us to stand up and grab the opportunity to bless Israel’s soldiers.
Give to Rafi now and bless Israel’s holy soldiers with food, drinks, shelter, Bible classes, and lots of love.
When you take the field against your enemies, and see horses and chariots—forces larger than yours—have no fear of them, for Hashem your God, who brought you from the land of Egypt, is with you.
כִּי־תֵצֵא לַמִּלְחָמָה עַל־אֹיְבֶיךָ וְרָאִיתָ סוּס וָרֶכֶב עַם רַב מִמְּךָ לֹא תִירָא מֵהֶם כִּי־יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ עִמָּךְ הַמַּעַלְךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם

A letter from our founder, Rabbi Tuly Weisz
I started Israel365 in 2012 as an email to friends and family. The goal was to connect the Lovers of Israel with the Land and People of Israel, every day of the year.
“It is a land which Hashem God looks after, on which Hashem your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end.” (Deuteronomy 11:12)
Ten years later, Israel 365 has blossomed. We now bring the Land of the Bible into the homes and hearts of millions of Jews and Christians around the world. Our readers love our daily emails, our Israel Bible, and the causes we support. Our regular charity projects in Israel include renovating the apartments of Holocaust survivors, programs for IDF soldiers, and assisting terror victims financially. We also plant trees to beautify the Land, and support farmers who observe the Sabbatical (Shemittah) year.
Please join us and bring the blessings of the Land and People of Israel to the whole world.
“I will bless those who bless you…And all the families of the earth will bless themselves by you.” (Genesis 12:3)
