The desert community of Arad is special to the land of Israel, and very special to B'nai Shalom of West Orange, New Jersey. It is the third-largest city in Israel (in terms of Jurisdiction) and has immense development potential. In this region, once children grow up, they typically migrate to the center of the country where there are increased economic and social opportunities.
In order to keep people in their hometowns, they need to see the beauty in their own backyard. However, development doesn't stem solely from appreciating and discovering local treasures.
We're calling on our B'nai Shalom community to join us in supporting this initiative by supporting the Arad Yehoshafet Central Park.
Our goal ensures that the city of Arad stays fiscally healthy, is able to continue the imperative development of the region, as well as have the funds available to provide immigrant families in need with financial aid, so that we may continue to build the great state of Israel, together.
Now more than ever, your donations are essential to preserving the vibrancy of our community and connect the next generation to their heritage and to Israel. Help us keep our dream of building this beautiful community alive.
