Thank you for making the Dream Trip a Reality!
Here’s a glimpse into some of the amazing experiences the Holocaust Survivors had in Israel because of your support and prayer!
Rabbi Stewart shared an update from Jerusalem in this video. If you missed it or want to watch it again…
The Holocaust Survivors got to experience various beautiful sites throughout the country…
The Holocaust Survivors got a chance to enjoy the wonder of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth.
The Survivors toured Masada, the ancient fortress where the last stand of the Jewish Revolt against Rome took place.
Capernaum. The name of the town means “Village of Nahum”. The photo on the far left is of our Nahum in the synagogue ruins! Nahum is 96 and survived the Minsk Ghetto, and the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Dachau, and Natweiler-Struhof. He’s still going strong! We also visited Caesarea and Kiriat Yearim where the Ark of the covenant stayed 20 years in the house of Obed Edom.

What a dream come true to celebrate Purim in Israel!
This was probably the most difficult and emotional day of the trip. We visited Yad Vashem with the Survivors. This place brought back many memories of their own experiences and we wept together as we remembered the suffering they have endured and the loved ones they lost. For several of them, the people who saved their lives are honored here as Righteous Among the Nations. We pray God will continue to comfort and heal these dear people.
This was one of the unique experiences the dream trip offered. A visit to a Messianic Moshav Yad Hashmona. There the survivors and Belarussian RII team were able to meet Israeli survivors and part of the RII team serving in Israel.
Before Heading back to Belarus, the survivors were taken to visit the Mount of Olives. At the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, everyone’s hearts were deeply moved as we read Isaiah 53 and from the book of John. They also experienced Shabbat in Jerusalem, and prayed at the Kotel (Western Wall) and where we also met some young IDF officers.
