Christian Organization Brings 500 Volunteers to Israel to Help Farmers

A group of 500 Christian volunteers has traveled to Israel to support farmers in Judea and Samaria as part of a trip organized by the American Christian organization HaYovel.

The visiting volunteers—from the U.S., Canada, Norway, and New Zealand, among other countries—are working on farms throughout Judea and Samaria in order to support Israel’s economy during the conflict with Hamas.

“Right now is the most important time to support Israel,” HaYovel founder Zac Waller told Israel National News.

Before the trip, Waller recorded a music video titled “Israel, You’re Not Alone” to express his personal support for the Jewish state.

The visit by HaYovel volunteers comes as other Christian groups and leaders are traveling to Israel to express their solidarity. Earlier this month, a group of 51 Christian pastors toured Israel as part of a visit sponsored by Christians United For Israel.

This week, former Pennsylvania senator and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum led a delegation of political and Christian religious figures on a solidarity mission to Israel with his conservative grassroots group, “Patriot Voices.”

During a visit to the Western Wall tunnels in the City of David, Santorum remarked on the historical connection between Israel and Christians.

“Walking through the City of David, seeing the excavations and seeing the bible come to life, is really quite remarkable… It’s a great start to the understanding of Jerusalem, not just for Jews, but for all of us,” Santorum said.
