For over a century, money raised in Blue Boxes has assisted Zionist pioneers in their efforts to build the infrastructure of a modern, thriving state.
Today, the Blue Box remains a powerful symbol of Jewish unity and a reminder of the part every Jew can play in strengthening Eretz Israel.
YERUCHAM HERITAGE PARK
Every child deserves the right to lush, open spaces. Currently the Nof Midbar neighbourhood of Yerucham is without a local park.
With your support this Rosh Hashanah, the Yerucham Heritage Park will become a green oasis of nature in which these families can spend quality time with one another. Currently a barren plot of desert, it will become a green campus with a panoramic view.
The community of Yerucham includes many new immigrants and over 3,600 young families, all of whom will also utilise this essential resource. And, after 18 months of intermittent lockdowns, they need our help more than ever.
This park will be a jewel at the entrance to Yerucham. Incorporating the Yerucham Heritage Museum, it will also bolster the local economy through increased tourism from surrounding cities and, in time, international travellers.
Your donation today will provide a wonderful new haven for activity and will give these vulnerable children an opportunity for educational and physical development.
Thank you for your continued support and for giving children, just like yours, new hope for the future.
Yerucham Heritage Park before and after
The project incorporates a Heritage Museum, new groves of trees, shaded seating areas, an amphitheatre and a state-of-the-art playground.
This new green space will provide a recreational and outdoor learning facility for residents and encourage visitors to the area. This will support the local economy and promote greater awareness of the town’s contribution to Israel’s development.
