Operation Restoration:

Rehabbed Jewish Immigrant Homes in Israel!

.....The only all-volunteer, American, 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to purchasing abandoned or substandard urban properties, and renovating them as affordable and attractive in-town rental housing for needy Jewish refugees arriving in Israel.

....Take a tour, build a home, alleviate suffering, bring Mid-East peace, read a bio, give a tax- deductible gift, recycle aged properties, experience an adventure mission of interest to men, women,teens, retirees, all religions, races & backgrounds.
"You shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in" (Isaiah 58:12).

100-year-old walled courtyard property which Operation Restoration rebuilt into five attractive homes clustered around a garden.

Operation Restoration's Founder & International Director.

.....Over one million new immigrants ("olim" [oh-LEEM] in Hebrew) have fled life-threatening anti-Semitism in their countries of origin, coming to Israel since 1990. In a land where there are no widespread rentals, where the average new urban apartment costs $200,000 (in shekel equivalent) and the average salary is under $20,000, what's a newcomer to do?
...They cannot own, they cannot rent. Private initiative is desperately needed.
...This one-of-a-kind project is unduplicated by any other charity. Operation Restoration stands alone in recycling Israel's waste places for low-cost refugee rentals, benefiting both the people and the land..

.....Donations do not go to pay salaries, since we are volunteers. Tax- deductible under U.S. law, gifts go directly to house disadvantaged immigrants with nowhere else to turn. The need exists; the solution exists. All that's required is further funding. See how to help them today....
