Kishorit, a winery in northern Israel, empowers those with special needs to accomplish their goals in life.

The Kishorit winery and vineyard was founded in a northern Israel kibbutz of the same name in 1994 to provide vocational training for students at a nearby school for teenagers with developmental disabilities.

The students run the wine production process from the beginning to the end.

The name “Kishorit” comes from the word “connect” in Hebrew, highlighting the connection that the 160 adults who live in Kishorit have with the land, with their community, and with meaningful work.

Watch as vineyard worker Yaron Biran explains, in Hebrew, “Kishorit gives me a good feeling, it gives me fun, it gives me satisfaction, it gives me enjoyment. I’m very connected to the land. When people come and buy wine from the vineyard, it makes me feel like ‘wow, I participated in this process!’”

Life-Saving ATVs Stop Terrorists Before they Attack Innocent Israelis

Palestinian attackers have terrorized Israelis with stabbings, shootings, bombings and car-rammings throughout Israel, with no end in sight.

Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
