Our Proposal

Buy a Piece of Israel (Registered in Israel as, Hashkaot B’Ahavat Yisrael Ltd), is a business whose company is based in Israel.  Our aim is to encourage investment in Israeli private property by all of our Jewish brothers and sisters around the world, thereby helping to fortify Jewish sovereignty in Israel’s Galilee region and elsewhere throughout Israel as well as gaining the purchaser an asset that can garner him or her a modest profit.
We strive to have Jews from all over the world get involved by actually purchasing parts, or all of, large agricultural lots and then create jobs by having all-Jewish labor manage fruit producing produce with a percentage of yield going to the land owners.  This is a win-win-win-win situation.  First, by Jews purchasing the land with a long term goal, there is a stronger connection between Jews and the Land of Israel, creating stronger Jewish sovereignty in the Galilee.  Second, by working the land, Jewish labor and residency in the local areas increase.  Third, since the land will be managed regularly, the potential squatters will have to look elsewhere.  And finally, instead of making a donation, the purchaser owns something in the Land of Israel that will also give him/her a modest profit and he/she fulfills the commandment of owning land in Eretz Yisrael.
