“Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” Psalm 127:1
Beit Shalom is a house that was truly built by the Lord. Not the brick and mortar, but the REAL foundation and the atmosphere inside. Walk into Beit Shalom and you will immediately become aware of a calm, a peace, a sense of having come home. It is God’s house, lived in by volunteers and used for event for the Holocaust Survivors.
Beit Shalom, the house which is the AHI base of operations, is for sale. And the landlord is wanting us to move or buy it ASAP. The location is excellent, near the Survivor’s homes, and we feel it is time to own this property.
We desperately need your help. If you have ever wanted to invest in the soil of Israel, this is the time.
If you would like to be part of this purchase, or know others that can help, please contact us or send a donation to Beit Shalom. Thank you for being a part of the AHI footprint on Israeli soil!
