My fellow Jews, those who have sacrificed to settle our promised land, to give your children a holy, religious upbringing in the land of OUR forefathers, do you know where your children are?  Do you know who is coming into contact with them, speaking with them and even hugging them while you assume their precious neshamot are in the hands of fellow Jews who would protect them?

Israeli Jew turned xian missionary, Jacob Damkani, runs an outreach to missionize Israeli Jews in Tel Aviv called Trumpets of Salvation.

He runs a program that hosts volunteers from around the world where he trains "disciples" and takes them around Israel to missionize, part of the program includes tours of Israel. Posted on his facebook page were pictures of him speaking to Israeli children in the Shomron.

Obviously I don't know what he spoke to these children about but their parents sure should. This isn't the only xian to have access to children in the yishuvim in Israel.

Fellowship Church in Wintersprings, Florida has been bringing a group of volunteers every year for 8 years to build a park in Kedumim.  The goal of this is to "build bridges" and form relationships with religious Jews.   In a podcast (link no longer works) about their most recent trip to Kedumim, volunteer Gerri brags about their success,

 "...they even bring children out from the school. Every class is instructed to come out to the park once a week and the kids come out."

Another Fellowship volunteer, Steve Hassel, posted on Fellowships facebook page on April 18, 2013,

The Lord must have sensed our drop in energy level (our average age for the 10-person team is 62.5, so that wasn't a surprise), because two different groups of school boys showed up at different times in the afternoon. Like a page out of Tom Sawyer, the boys saw us shoveling gravel or dirt and wanted in on the action: a blessing to both us and them, as they felt good about their efforts and we enjoyed stepping back and directing.

Hasel posted these photos of the children of Kedumim on this church's facebook page.

Day 5 was wonderful (as were days 1-4). We began with a pre-breakfast visit to a boy's school in NE Kedumim, just a half-mile from the park. I had met a few of the boys at the park on Wednesday, and they remembered "the crazy American" who sat with them in one of the wading pools. The principal is the son-in-law of Shlomo, our project director. The most interesting thing about the school is that it has a collection of small animals, birds and reptiles; inspiring for young students.

The latest fad for xian tour groups is to visit yishuvim and meet Jews.  Many xian groups are being taken on tours through the yishuvim on a regular basis.  Christian Friends of Israeli Communities takes donations from xians for projects; including playgrounds, daycares and summer camps. Plaques are put up to make sure that Jews know who they should be grateful to for these projects.

The CFOIC Heartland Israel office supervises the distribution of funds and completion of the project. Once completed, a plaque is hung in a prominent place indicating that the project has been funded by Christian Friends of Israeli Communities, a testament to the practical import of Christian support for Israel. 

The xian benefactors can visit these yishuvim, on tours with CFOIC, to see what their donations accomplished and to meet the people.  This is going on in most of the yishuvim. Many of these xians take pictures of the children and post them on their facebook pages when they return home from their trips.
