About Us

Zera Israel is non-profit organization that acts on a global scale.
Zera Israel’s vision is to reach out to the millions of people from the “Seed of Israel” around the world and bring them closer to Judaism and the State of Israel in a welcoming and approachable manner, while preserving the rules of Halacha (Jewish Law). Zera Israel strives to reach out and help those in need, through which it contributes to the future of the Jewish People, while spreading unity and brotherhood among our nation.

This is done through the establishment of dozens of welcoming congregations and outreach centers across five continents- in addition to the ever growing and ever evolving online presence, which enables even the most distant of places to become close. This is how we bridge the gap, this is how we strengthen the existing Jewish identity, while bringing the people back to the Torah and introducing Torah to all people.

Zera Israel was founded by Arie Toledano and under the inspired guidance of the esteemed Rabbi Haim Amsellem. These two men and many more have been working tirelessly to open the gates to all who have a calling to join the house Israel, while remaining true to the “halacha” according to the teachings of Moses.

For this reason, we humbly and with great anticipation welcome the “Bnei Anusim”, and here lies the main focus of our cause. These are lost Jewish souls who have been scattered throughout the world over centuries. With the explosion of the Internet, social media and genealogy sites, millions are discovering their descendent ancestry, kindling an urge to discover their Jewish roots and connect with other Jewish communities. These discoveries and connections have led the realization that they could live a Jewish lifestyle and become halachic members of the Jewish people if they chose. These are individuals with Jewish blood running through their veins, who have been keeping the Jewish laws and traditions their entire lives. It is our moral obligations as Jews to welcome our lost brothers and help them find their way home.

To help advance these goals, Zera Israel supports and invests in Jewish communities across the globe while focusing on tightening their bond with the Land of Israel. In addition, we produce many events, various activities and content, in order to connect everyone to the Jewish roots while uniting us all.

We would be honored if you would join us in this divine calling of uniting our people, putting an end to assimilation and strengthening our bonds personally and on a global scale.

Together we are actively and openly seeking to realize the words of God as written in Ezekiel 34:13…

 I will take them out from among the nations, and I will gather them from the lands and bring them to their land, and I will shepherd them to the mountains of Israel, by the streams and in all the dwellings of the land…”
