Jews for… Jews!

There are Jews of stripes, backgrounds and colors, but the main thing is that we all love one another.

My name is Yankele, and I live in Meah Shearim. That’s right, you know it, the neighborhood of Chareidim. I attend my Rebbe’s tish every Friday night in order to experience the true meaning of shabbos delight.

There are Jews of all stripes, backgrounds and colors, but the main thing is that we all love one another.

I’m from Modiin, and my name is Eyal. I’m in the middle of my training as a chayal (soldier). My base is located near the town of Beit El, my mission and dream to protect Eretz Yisrael.

There are Jews of stripes backgrounds and colors, but the main thing is that we all love one another.

My name is Shaul and I’m Shephardi. I am a proud resident of Kiryat Malachi. I enjoy playing with my friends and learning Torah, continuing the path of my unique mesorah (tradition).

There are Jews of all stripes backgrounds and colors but the main thing is that we all love each other.

My name is Chaim, I learn in Yeshivas Mir. My favorite part of the day is my Rebbi’s shiur (Talmudic lecture). Gemara, Rashi, the Taz and Shach, to learn Torah all day, what a gevaldige zach (amazing thing)!

There are Jews of all stripes backgrounds and colors, but the main thing is that we all love one another.

My name is Itai, I’m from Rechovot. It was just a while ago that I began observing mitzvot. Everyday I learn something new, of what it means to live as a Jew.

We are all Jews different from one another, but the main thing as that we all look out for each other.

We are all Jews, a family in our land. And it is our responsibility to walk together, arm in arm, hand in hand…
