Boreh Pri Hagafen!

Blessing the fruit of the vine is as ancient as 5780 years of Jewish tradition. It’s also as modern as the State of Israel where the wine industry is booming.

The MARJCC has partnered with The Israel Innovation Fund to support Wine on the Vine (WOTV), a new project that funds planting more grapevines in Israel. But wait… there’s MORE! By supporting WOTV, you can also help families right here at MARJCC.  For every vine you plant, WOTV will return a portion of your gift to our Families Helping Families Scholarship Program.

At MARJCC, we believe life is about living more joyfully and giving more generously. With your gift to WOTV, you can help Israeli farmers grow more and help our community thrive more. We can all drink to that!
