THE REKHOVOT PROJECT
A Network of Discipleship/Aliyah* Houses throughout Israel

Genesis 26:22 “And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rekhovoth, saying, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”

The purpose of these “lighthouses” is to help Messianic believers grow as strong, healthy disciples of Yeshua and integrate into Israeli society, functioning as fruitful salt and light in the world around them. The houses are for new immigrants and Israeli residents, for the purposes of outreach, discipleship, deliverance and inner healing.

Interestingly, the word “rekhovot” in Hebrew means streets. Our vision is to have homes on various streets/rekhovot throughout the Land of Israel. We currently have one house in operation in Arad, Israel.

*Aliyah is the term used when Jewish People return to Israel as new immigrants

 

THE REKHOVOT VISION:

Each house has the following:

  1. House parent / Overseer
  2. Discipleship volunteers who come from overseas and serve 1-3 months
  3. Disciples

House Parent and Disciples stay at the house without financial obligation (other than personal expenses), but with expectations and duties (including spiritual discipleship) that must be done with excellence. Volunteers pay a minimal amount to help cover the basic cost of their stay. Disciples are welcome to hold jobs, as long as they fulfill their Rekhovot obligations. The number of disciples in each house is dependent on the size of the house. i.e. Arad, Rekhovot House: BR 1: House Parent; BR 2 Volunteer(s); BR 3 – 3 disciples; BR 4 – 3 disciples. Houses will be exclusively male or female. Volunteers can be a single or a couple.

  1. House Parent: Oversight of all details
