God’s deep, unfailing love for Israel is well documented in His Word. He speaks through Isaiah with great emotion, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.” Isaiah 49:15-16
Seeing and feeling the God of Israel’s strong emotion towards His people and land inspires our own hearts to beat with the same passion. It is this passion that compelled us to establish HaYovel. We, as a multi-generational and family oriented organization strive to unite Jews and Christians to work together towards one common goal – the restoration of Israel through tending the land.
“So they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the wasted, desolate, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ Then the nations which are left all around you shall know that I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it.” Ezekiel 36:35,36
Why Judea and Samaria?
“You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria…” Jeremiah 31:5
Judea and Samaria are the historical and spiritual heartland of Israel, and the heart of where we work. The majority of the Biblical history unfolded in this area! Here, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob each received the promise that this land would belong to their descendants FOREVER.
This region is often called “the West Bank” in the media. It is possibly the most contested piece of real estate in the world. Many Jewish people live here because they believe the PROMISE given to Abraham and believe in the restoration of Israel, as prophesied in the Bible. Farmers inspired by the words of the prophets have planted vineyards and olive groves. Some planted in faith, not knowing where they would find laborers to bring in the harvest. Many farmers we serve depend on HaYovel volunteers to keep afloat, year after year.
We invite you, by faith, to leap into the prophetic pages of the Holy Scripture and join us as we sink our hands into the soil of God’s beloved Israel. Experience the incredible restoration of the Land and People God has never forgotten.
