If you were young and wanted to make a difference for good in the world, how would you do that? Isaac and Jacob Lind made a difference by volunteering to work in Israel. 

The Lind brothers, Jacob (left) and Isaac (right), went to Israel at the end of 2023 as volunteer workers to meet needs created by the Hamas war.

The war brought on by the brutal Hamas invasion of Israel on October 7, 2023, has created many needs, particularly a shortage of labor. The Lind brothers helped alleviate that shortage by serving for seven weeks with HaYovel, working on projects such as harvesting olives and building a horse therapy facility.  In this interview, they share with us their reasons for volunteering in Israel, what they learned there, and why it is important for Christians to look for ways to support Israel and the Jewish people in this time of great need.

Isaac and Jacob are representative of the many young people from America and elsewhere whose love for Israel is motivating them to do what they can to help in Israel’s time of need. This is different from the narrative we usually hear, which says that the younger generation opposes Israel and is swept up in the irrational, hate-filled rhetoric against God’s Chosen People. That’s why the Lind brothers and others like them are encouraging to all who share their love of God’s people and His land.

Would you like to help send more young people like Isaac and Jacob to Israel to volunteer? You can! B’ney Yosef North America has long been committed to giving a minimum of 10% of our income to support Israel. Now, we are called to do even more. We are joining forces with HaYovel to supplement expenses for selected volunteers to travel to Israel to help in the land.*

*Due to the critical need for volunteers and the security situation in the Land, we have prayerfully partnered with HaYovel, who already has guidelines and processes in place for volunteers. We hope that in the future, we will be able to create a checklist of requirements that would allow us to draw from applicants affiliated with BYNA.
