Welcome to the Lighthouse Project

A Beacon of Hope and Transformation

Nestled in the heart of the Galilee of the Nations, the Lighthouse stands as a symbol of hope, support, and community. Our multifaceted headquarters is more than just a building; it’s a vibrant hub where lives are transformed and dreams are nurtured. From providing essential housing to lone soldiers and new immigrants making Aliyah, offering community spaces like a coffee shop, BBQ area, and the Galilean Interactive Museum, the Lighthouse is dedicated to shining a light on those in need.

With every floor, we offer a new opportunity for growth, support, and safety. Our comprehensive facilities include private accommodations, communal living spaces, and state-of-the-art amenities designed to foster a sense of belonging and community. But our vision extends beyond bricks and mortar. Inspired by the powerful words of Isaiah 9:2, we are committed to being a source of light and hope to those who have walked in darkness.

The journey of the Lighthouse is ongoing, and every contribution helps us illuminate more lives. Join us in this remarkable endeavor—your support not only lights up the Lighthouse but also brightens the future of countless individuals and the community at large. Together, we can be a beacon of hope in the Galilee of the Nations.

Be a part of this luminous journey. Illuminate. Transform. Inspire. Support the Lighthouse Project today.

I just made Aliyah, I am a jew who has come home and I needed some help. Some very sweet people directed me to the Aliyah Return Center and these very kind people have been helping me with so many needs as I absorb into the Land.

I would like to thank the Aliyah Return Center for all that they do for people who feel alone, people who have nowhere to go. They helped me get clothes, and helped my Aunt with a place to stay, and the complex paperwork.

Thank you so much for the gift card and for your kindness during these uncertain times. We were able to buy much needed groceries during Passover for our family including diapers for our baby. May Hashem continue to bless you and your organization as you asset His children to come home.
