In today’s society, the strongest resource we have as the Jewish nation is our pride - in who we are, and what we stand for. With extremism on the rise, many are searching for how to define themselves in a world where hating Jews has become commonplace and increasingly mainstream. It is our imperative to provide today’s global Jewish community with the necessary tools to make meaningful connections between ourselves, the world, and the diverse legacy and meaning of Israel.
It is our responsibility to shape the identity, self-confidence and pride of Jewish youth as proud members of a people with a rich history, a deep heritage, and an ancestral homeland to which we are eternally connected. Making this possible is the vision and goal of The Israel Forever Foundation, empowering young and old alike to take ownership of the history, values and connection of our ancestral heritage.
The Israel Forever Foundation is a small not for profit Israel Engagement organization that develops and promotes experiential learning opportunities to celebrate and strengthen the personal connection to Israel. By cultivating a personal connection with the multi-faceted reality of Israel, the Israel Forever Foundation fosters understanding, respect, involvement and pride in Israel. Israel Forever has developed mutually beneficial relationships with organizations, communities and grassroots initiatives that share in our mission of providing Israel engagement programming and inspiration for the whole of the Jewish world.
The genius of Israel Forever is its success in serving as a non-denominational, apolitical avenue for personal activism beneficial to individuals, families and communities alike. The uniqueness of Israel Forever is our emphasis on deepening the personal connection and literacy on the relevance of Israel to Jewish life and identity. Our unique emphasis on Israel engagement has the potential to unite Jews of all nationalities, backgrounds, religious and political affiliations through the common bond of our historical link and commitment to our Jewish past, present and future in Israel.
The innovation of Israel Forever is our contribution of expert content and resources that break down the elements of the personal connection and literacy on the relevance of Israel to Jewish life and identity. The extensive selection of products provided by Israel Forever makes us, as a small organization stand out as a complementary and crucial resource to the advocacy, hasbara, formal education efforts. Together we can strengthen the fight against the antisemitic, BDS, anti-Israel, and anti-Zionism movements by increasing awareness about Israel Forever and its assets for educators and community leaders of all ages.
We do not advocate for picket signs or rallies to push people in a certain direction. We believe very strongly in making Israel personal and bringing it into your life in whichever way you choose. The Israel Forever Foundation tries to target and reach out to people of all backgrounds and affiliations like Chabad, gap year students, Birthright alumni, etc.
We, at Israel Forever, are real people trying to make Israel a place to not just hear about on the news. Our mission is to make sure the genuine voices of Israel are heard, while offering people numerous ways to make Israel relevant through engaging content and educational opportunities. Our resources include activities related to the Jewish holidays, such as Sukkot Art Activities, discussions about Jewish unity, such as Unity, not Uniformity, Shabbat Talks, with a special focus on Forgiveness Yom Kippur, and much more content for children and adults of all ages.
