Rabbi David Katz, Executive Director of the Israel Heritage Foundation, spent the past few days with the Yeshiva University students who came to Israel on a special support mission.

Rabbi Katz, together with Knesset Member Ohad Tal, joined the group for a special Thanksgiving barbecue in Hebron, near the Tomb of the Patriarchs. The event was sponsored by the Israel Heritage Foundation.

The YU student organizers and student mission participants directed fundraising for the project with added financial support from Dr. Joseph Frager, Rabbi David Katz, and Jonathan Burkan of the Israel Heritage Foundation and organizational support from Kumah NonProfit founded and run by Rabbi Yishai Fleisher (a graduate of YU and Cardozo Law and currently Spokesman for the Jewish Community in Hebron).
