The Tear Drop driveway is a special memorial. It is a showcase for all who enter. There are a number of groups, people, visitors supporting Israel. These people have visited the Aliyah Return Center (ARC) and placed their countries flag to show that they want to bless Israel.
There are a number of ways to support Israel, but for this post, we will focus on the TEARDROP:
- These flags last only three months due to Israel’s hot sun and wind.
- These flags should be replaced four times a year. This will help maintain a fresh, well-cared for, bright-looking flags for the teardrop drive as a visual reminder as they enter the ARC, a save haven for the Olim, those who are making Aliyah (returning to Israel). This is a visual reminder that mentally raises the spirit, as well as, brings a sense of encouragement to all who enter as they see these flags.
- They are a testimony and banner of the LORD’S goodness and blessing to Israel.
- All who see them will be blessed knowing Israel is supported and remembered.
If your church or group is willing to help support your nation’s flag, these flags are $50.00 apiece and four flags a year comes to $400 a year. Shipping anything to Israel is far too costly, and the flags are made here in Israel so to expedite replacing the flag in a timely manner is done by sending financial support.
This project is not only to encourage the returning Jews making Aliyah, it is one of many ways to support Jews returning to Israel as they absorb into the Jewish culture and they learn a whole new language, Hebrew.
