HaMercaz has become a home and refuge for many young single ladies here in the Tel Aviv area. These ladies stay for hours after scheduled events to discuss deep, personal issues with our female staff and are looking for a godly perspective and hope in light of the Scriptures. We have built an authentic community of believers.
One of our staff had the chance to speak with Hannah,* who came with her daughter to our center for a Sabbath dinner. Hannah told one of our workers the story of how she grew up in a religious community and, after coming to believe in Yeshua (Jesus), was ostracized for her faith. She told her how much she appreciated the safe and welcoming environment of our community.
These women really feel like they are part of the body of Messiah and appreciate the unity. With such a central location near the train station, people also often comment how they love how many people come to HaMercaz from so many different congregations and diverse regions.
