Western Wall Erected at Jewish Home Ahead of Israel Mission

Residents at the Jewish Home Assisted Living in River Vale and Jewish Home at Rockleigh have erected models of Jerusalem’s Western (or Wailing) Wall ahead of the Jewish Home Family’s Mission to Israel.

Community members and day schools are invited to visit and tuck their notes and prayers between the cracks of our replicas, which will then be taken by our residents to Israel and placed in between the ancient stones in the Jerusalem holy site.

The 10-day Israel journey will begin October 18, with residents and staff members visiting Jerusalem, the Judean Desert, Tel Aviv, the Galilee, Golan Heights and other sites—including an optional visit to Palestinian-controlled Bethlehem to allow the mission’s Christian participants to engage the rich Christian history in the Holy Land as well.

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

The Jewish Home Family is the organizational parent of the Jewish Home at Rockleigh—Russ Berrie Home for Jewish Living, the Jewish Home Assisted Living—Kaplen Family Senior Residence, the Jewish Home at Home and the Jewish Home Foundation of North Jersey.

The mission of the Jewish Home Family and its constituent organizations is to provide the very best care, service and guidance for the benefit of our elderly and their families, at home and at our facilities, now and into the future, regardless of race, religion or financial ability, consistent with our Jewish traditions and values.
