HELPING the

MIGHTY MEN of ISRAEL

First, let us lay a foundation from Scripture. I Chronicles 11:26 and 41, “Also the valiant men of the armies were…41, “Uriah the Hittite…” URIAH the Hittite is listed among the mighty men of David...
THE NAME

URIAH

The name “Uriah” comes from Scripture and most everyone is familiar with the story. Uriah was not a Jew yet he fought with David and his mighty men. Because Uriah was a Gentile fighting with the Jewish people, we have adopted his name because though we might not be able to fight alongside the Jewish people, as Gentiles we can provide much needed equipment to the mighty men and women in Israel – thus...
THE URIAH PROJECT.

FOR A MOMENT

THINK ABOUT THIS

taken from an article by BC Sharp and edited by Garry Way
Imagine you live in a small, rural community. In Israel it is called a “kibbutz” or a “moshav.” The early Israeli pioneers needed the “kibbutz” to survive the hostile conditions of the late 19th and early 20th century. These small communities are isolated all over Israel.
These “kibbutzim” and “moshavim” are basically self-sustaining communities using farming and/or manufacturing as the means of existence. One kibbutz where we have been makes office supplies such as clipboards and three-ring binders. Another kibbutz makes solar panels for swimming pool heaters. Most of the time the products are shipped all over the world.
The homes are usually small duplexes positioned throughout the community. You will see a playground, a daycare and kindergarten, as well as the community dining room. If it is a manufacturing community, the facility is located within the kibbutz or moshav.
Most of the communities are located on the borders of Israel, whether it be Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and Gaza. Presently we are concentrating on helping the communities southwestern Israel near Beersheva.
IMAGINE

LIVING ONLY A MILE AWAY

Imagine living only a mile or so away from a people who have only one desire – the destruction of Israel. Every day they face the danger of terrorists attacking their homes. As you may well know, the communities along the border with Gaza face rocket and mortar attacks on a regular basis, as well as the tunnels dug from Gaza into Israel.

Who Defends?Small Communities Numbering 50 to 1,000

Who Protects?The Innocent

Who Watches?Over their Daycare Children

Who Goes without Sleep?So that a Child does not have Nightmares

Who Keeps?A Trained Eye on the Horizon and a Trained Hand on a Weapon

Who Keeps?The Elderly Secure in their Homes

Who Goes Without?a Shabbat meal with his family so that all the other families can enjoy a Shabbat meal together

A SECURITY CHIEF KNOWN AS

RAVSHATZ

The man who coordinates all this is a security chief known as a Ravshatz. He is the equivalent of an American “sheriff.” He is the man chosen for such a monumental task. He coordinates all the men in his community in the event of an attack from Arab terrorists.
He is the first responder. He must confront the enemy first. He must put his life on the line first. He must shoot first. He must alert his community first. He must alert the military first. There is no time for delay when the enemy is executing well thought out plans to destroy a Kibbutz or Moshav. The Ravshatz is the first man standing between terror and the innocent civilians.
The enemy suddenly appears from an underground tunnel, through the fence, or in an unfamiliar vehicle, and maybe even a motorcycle. The Ravshatz must make an instant decision. To delay means he may be killed, his family may be killed and his community be decimated. A decision that would take an hour for the military to make. A decision that would take a month for a court to make. A decision that would take a year for politicians to make. The Ravshatz has to make it now!
He knows every tree and bush surrounding his village. He constantly patrols his community and the area around it. (We have ridden patrols with these men.) He knows every contour of the landscape. He knows the people who live there. He knows before anyone if something is wrong.
The Ravshatz is one of the most unique men in all of Israel. He is part civilian and part military. He is normally issued one used weapon, two 30 round magazines, ammo and a small truck to patrol 24/7. He has one radio to the military and uses his cell phone to alert the men from his community who form the community security team. Most of his supplies he provides himself. He was a former soldier and usually a reserve officer in IDF.
He does not complain because his tools are inadequate. He makes the most from the little he has. The men from his community who form his security team are equally under-equipped.
All these men need help…my help…your help.

THE URIAH PROJECT'S

COMMITMENTS

ISRAELI COMMUNITIES

ON THE BORDER OF WICKEDNESS

All these Israeli communities are on the border of wickedness. If we had the means today we would get what is needed to these courageous Jews to live. We want to provide bullet-proof vests, spotting scopes, night vision equipment, two-way radios, binoculars, Leatherman multi-tools, and flashlights.

It is much better to be pro-active than reactive. It is too late after a Jew has been killed to make a difference. It is too little too late to give a band aid after a catastrophic injury. We can help stop the attackers from getting into these communities and therefore prevent the atrocities.

Would you help keep the civilian Jewish population stay alive for an extra 15-20 minutes until the army arrives? At this time, we are asking for supplies for the civilian population. Imagine a subdivision and you and a handful of neighborhood men are the only ones that can protect it and the people inside from an imminent attack.

A BRIEF HISTORY

Since 2004, we have been able to interact with IDF soldiers, the Ravshatzim (plural form in Hebrew,) other men in these communities, Border Patrol soldiers and IDF Officers. All these brave men were very touched that we would go to the front lines to let them know we are praying for their safety. We have had them say that our presence there meant more than any gift we bring. We have stayed in kibbutz guest houses.

The men in these communities are soldiers, they are husbands, they are fathers, they are Hebrews. I cannot help but think we are helping a descendent of one of David's mighty men defend the same soil that was defended thousands of years ago.
