We’re David and Hannah Johnson, full time staff with HaYovel, a donor supported volunteer organization. We represent HaYovel in Canada and spend approximately half of our year in Israel, connecting hundreds of Christian volunteers with the land and people of the Bible.
On July 12th our family will be travelling to Israel to help lead hundreds of volunteers that are converging on Israel from all over the world.
As we travel in Israel we tell Israelis that we represent you and many others who love the people of Israel and who sponsor our family’s work with HaYovel.
Would you prayerfully consider sponsoring us to represent you in the land of Israel?
Thank you for supporting us as we work towards the restoration of Israel. Thank you for sending us from the nations, as we take a message of support and encouragement to the Jewish people in the land of Israel!

We’re excited to announce HaYovel’s Israeli wine and chocolate tasting events in Canada! We will be traveling across Canada this May and June and bringing the fruit of the land with us. Tasting Israel’s world renowned products and hearing our inspiring, eye witness report is sure to strengthen your faith and provide you with information that you just won’t get anywhere else!
What is the tour about? The goal of this tour is to:
Should YOU host a tasting?
How do you invite us to your area?
Have you watched HaYovel’s latest video, BDS or the Bible? This video brings up some important points, and for Canadians, it should remind us to stay up-to-date with Israel related news close to home.
In the last decade, Canada has been a great friend to Israel, but what is the status of our nation’s relationship with Israel now, and what will our foreign policy look like in the near future? Former PM Harper was unapologetic about his support for Israel, a support motivated by his strong moral compass. But with a new liberal government in Ottawa, many of us have been waiting with bated breath to see what changes will be made to Canadian foreign policy.
In late February our parliament made a great decision and approved, by a large majority, a draft resolution rejecting and condemning the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. On March 13th PM Trudeau even tweeted that “The BDS movement, like Israeli Apartheid Week, has no place on Canadian campuses…” Well, it’s great to see our liberal majority government making some sound decisions in standing against the popular anti-Israel propaganda.
It’s important for us, as Canadians, to realize that Israeli Apartheid Week was a Canadian initiative which began in Toronto in 2005. This fact alone could effectively communicate to the world that Canada is a leader in demonizing the only real democracy in the Middle East. Realizing the local origins of Israeli Apartheid Week makes the Canadian Parliament’s recent decision to oppose the BDS movement much more noteworthy. So hopefully, Parliament’s recent decision is a sign of future goodwill towards Israel and another positive step towards many years of Canadian friendship with the Jewish state.
My family and I traveled to Israel last fall with hundreds of HaYovel volunteers. The trip was impacting in so many ways. Volunteers grew in discipleship, we accomplished a lot of important volunteer work, and we strengthened many relationships with Israelis. We made a short video lately that we want to share with you to give you an insider’s look at Harvest 2015.
Watch this video to connect with some of our educational tour days and with the excitement of volunteering in Israel!

We recently set up an exhibit at a conference in Vancouver. We were encouraged by the interest that so many showed in volunteering in Judea and Samaria and connecting with the work of HaYovel Canada. We had an amazing time at the conference, so we made a video to share our excitement with you.
