Our visit to the arugot farm was truly a life changing experience. It was inspiring seeing modern day pioneers who are on the front line for the Jewish people and it’s homeland. It was both a fun and enlightening day which we will all cherish for many years to come.

Rav Yitzvhak Hutner told that he once took a walk with Rav Kook and another man amidst the mountains of the land of Israel. Rav Kook told how impressed he was by the landscape. The other man asked him, "But you were in the Alps. What is so special about these mountains?" Rav Kook replied, "The Alps didn't speak to me" Miracles, thank you for connecting us to our land

This morning Ari Abramowitz showed us the prophesy of Amos in fruition! Forever it was just mountains, rocks and dirt. We went there this morning and saw the new Jewish vineyards and fruit trees, not to mention the freshwater exo pool. Everyone needs to visit Arugot Farm!
