UNITED TOGETHER

About Israel365 Illinois

We live in tumultuous times, when Judeo-Christian values are under attack. Jews and Christians must stand together – in support of Israel, America and one another.

Based in Beit Shemesh, Israel, Israel365 was started on January 1, 2012 by Rabbi Tuly Weisz. Through its many initiatives, including Israel365 Education, Israel365 Charity, Israel365 Action and Israel365 Media, Israel365 has become one of the world’s largest organizations dedicated to bringing Jews and Christians together in support of Israel.
