Residents at the Jewish Home Assisted Living in River Vale and Jewish Home at Rockleigh have built models of Jerusalem’s Western Wall before the upcoming Jewish Home Family’s Mission to Israel.

Community members and students are invited to visit and tuck their notes and prayers between the cracks of the replicas. Residents will bring the notes to Israel and place them in between the ancient stones in Jerusalem.

The 10-day Israel journey will begin on October 18. Residents and staff members will visit Jerusalem, the Judean desert, Tel Aviv, the Galilee, the Golan Heights, and other sites. The trip will include an optional visit to Palestinian-controlled Bethlehem to allow the mission’s Christian participants to engage with the rich Christian history in the Holy Land.

The mission will be covered live and documented. Subscribe to the Jewish Home Family’s Facebook page for realtime updates: facebook.com/JewishHomeFamily.
