COMMUNITY

The DAGAN Mikveh

The construction of a Mikveh in the Dagan neighborhood is essential to make the ritual of family purity more accessible to the many wives and mothers living here. Walking to and from the nearest Mikveh, located in the Zayit neighborhood, is time consuming and can result in making more difficult the fulfillment of this important monthly mitzvah. Halachic law proscribes Mikveh construction precede the construction of a synagogue; even Torah scrolls are permitted to be sold for this purpose. We call upon you to play an active part in this important mitzvah alongside all the women of Dagan, and support their obligation in observance of the Jewish faith. 

If you are interested in becoming a private, foundational, or corporate sponsor of this our new Mikveh by making a significant or recurring financial gift, or providing an in-kind donation for the construction of this holy place, please reach out to us at kefrat@efrat.muni.il. A full sponsorship of $262,500 includes naming or memorialization opportunities for the Mikveh.

PUBLIC SERVICES

Our community is growing larger everyday - and so too are the number of visitors to our thriving city! One of the basic needs of any community are public restrooms for use in our shared spaces, as well as around our parks and playgrounds, to service the for the thousands of families now living in Efrat. With important health, sanitation and Halakhic obligations to consider, it is critical that all our public services, restrooms included, are safe, clean and usable. The total cost of a single restroom $25,000 (featuring five units for use by men, women and those with special needs), but any and all donations will help us continue to provide for our community. 

If you are interested in becoming a private, foundational, or corporate sponsor of our public service project by making a significant or recurring financial gift, or providing an in-kind donation for this critical infrastructure need (for one or more of our facilities), please reach out to us at kefrat@efrat.muni.il. Sponsorship includes naming or memorialization opportunities for each facility.

THE SonEZELEN ROOM

The city of Efrat is always seeking new and innovative ways to improve the quality of life for our community, and this is especially true when it comes to our senior citizens - many of whom are Holocaust survivors - and those with special needs - many of whom are children. In an effort to expand the services we can provide to this unique and growing demographic, the installment of a state-of-the-art, custom Sonezelen Room in our community day center is a critical and timely project.  

 

A Sonezelen Room is a multi-sensory therapeutic room that enables patients to relax and heal through sensory stimulation, a unique treatment that develops their communication capabilities. Studies have proven that this innovative treatment is effective in soothing and improving function for seniors as well as assisting in with those confronting a range of physical and psychological developmental issues. Learn more about the Sonzelen room in the video below or online here.

Sha'ar Ha'ir

The Gate To The City of Efrat

Our most ambitious project to date, Sha’ar Ha’ir or the Gate to the City of Efrat is a unique community, tourism and historical center. The city of Efrat, near Bethlehem, serves as the realization of the vision which foresees the return of the Jewish people to its homeland, as promised by the prophets.

The Torah tells us, "The people at the gate and the elders answered, “We are witnesses. May the LORD make the woman who is coming into your house like Rachel and Leah, both of whom built up the House of Israel! May you prosper in Ephrata and perpetuate your name in Bethlehem!" (Ruth 4:11)

 

In a region which was desolate, barren, and uninhabited just a few decades ago, now a thriving and growing city has been built, reviving the glory of the time of the Bible and the Holy Temple. In the fields of Bethlehem, where Ruth the Moabite walked and where the dynasty of the kingdom of Israel was born, a vibrant Israeli community is being established, where the laughter of Jewish children, and the prayers of their parents, is once again heard throughout the many homes across our seven neighborhoods.

 

At the main entrance to Efrat, the Sha'ar Ha'ir (Gate to the City) will serve to welcome those who come and visit our city from across Judea, Samaria, Israel and the world, just as Bethlehem received Ruth when she returned from the mountains of Moab. The Gate to the City is an urban landmark which will connects the city's glorious biblical past to our present day and age, presenting the treasured heritage of the Land of Judea. It will feature a state-of-the-art Visitors Center, providing tourist services to the many visitors who pass through Derech Ha'avot (Path of Our Patriarchs) where our forefathers Avraham, Yitzhak, and Yaakov walked from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and continued on to Hebron, the City of the Patriarchs.

 

From our Visitors Center, guests to our city will be able to enjoy The Bethlehem Promenade which will overlook the historic city and Solomon's Pools, which provided water to Jerusalem during the Second Temple period. The Gate to the City will also feature a courtyard, made from the ancient aqueduct that once supplied water to the Temple in Jerusalem. The entrance to the rock-cut shafts, some reaching as high as over 100 feet, will run expand from the Gate to the City compound.

 

 

 

 

The underground aqueduct - one of history’s most famed feats of human construction, known for its engineering sophistication and its technical capability - will lead to the Aqueduct Park, which will emerge from the Gate to the City. The park will recreate the ancient Judean landscapes and includes a stream of flowing water, just as it once had centuries ago.

 

If you are interested in becoming a private, foundational, or corporate sponsor of the City of the Gate project by making a significant financial gift, or providing an in-kind donation for our current infrastructure needs, please reach out to us at kefrat@efrat.muni.il. If you are interested in learning more about our future development phases, please reach out to us at kefrat@efrat.muni.il to schedule a call, or meeting in Efrat, with our Development Foundation today. Sponsorship may include naming or memorialization opportunities for elements of the project.
