Rabbi Avrum Friedmann Embarks on “Buy a Piece of Israel” Speaking Tour


avrum-friedmanThis Sunday, March 2nd, Rabbi Avrum Friedmann will be arriving for a speaking tour in the United States and Canada. Representing the nascent “Buy a Piece of Israel” project, Rabbi Friedman will be discussing the mitzvah of owning land in Eretz Yisroel and the various mitzvos associated with it. Moreover, he will address the timely issue of safeguarding Israel’s Galilee region under Jewish ownership and sovereignty as well as elucidating about the timeless concept of Jewish labor.

“Jews from all over the world can actually feel that they are a significant part of Israel, by owning parcels of land there,” Rabbi Friedmann told Matzav.com in an interview today. “Now, more than ever, with Israel being subjected to the most vicious kinds of propaganda campaigns by our enemies, many Jews want to help Israel; they want to feel as though they are part of the country.”

Rabbi Friedmann learned at both the Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn and Yeshivas Torah Ohr in Yerushalayim. He received semichah from Ahavas Torah in 1989. Since then, he has taught in various yeshivos, including Aish HaTorah and Ner Yaakov in Yerushalayim; and he initiated and taught a number of shiurim, including Daf Yomi, in Silver Spring, Maryland, and the Har Nof section of Yerushalayim.

As the Arab demographic time bomb in Israel continues to tick unabated and Arab land grabbers become more commonplace, the Buy a Piece of Israel project has created both a viable and profitable business plan in which Jews from around the world can purchase parts of large agricultural lots in the Galilee region and then create jobs by having a Jewish labor force manage fruit produce with a percentage of the yield going to the new land owners.

“This is a win-win-win-win situation,” declares Rabbi Friedmann. “Through working the land, Jewish labor and residency in the local areas increase and since the land will be managed regularly, the potential Arab squatters will have to look elsewhere. Most importantly, the purchaser owns something in the Land of Israel that will also give him/her a modest profit and he/she fulfills the commandment of owning land in Eretz Yisroel.”

Rabbi Friedmann’s tour will include an informative and enlightening address as well as a descriptive video of the Buy a Piece of Israel’s project and business plan.

Offering a feasable idea of how the business plan works, Rabbi Friedmann explained: “For as low a price as $299, the purchaser can own one unit of 4 cubits of land (4 amos) that measures 4 sq meters. The unit is registered in the purchaser’s name in the Israeli Attorney’s trust and every time a dunam (1000 square meters) is sold, the trust purchases the dunam on behalf of all the unit purchasers.” In addition, many other Galilee region opportunities will be presented.

Rabbi Friedmann’s speaking tour will begin at shuls in the New York/New Jersey area and continue around the Northeast US and Canada.

  1. This really on the table seems like a very interestingly good plan for any jew to do- own a small parcel of land in Israel. Perhaps you can plant a tree or just add a shrub. But really, it is simply a funny modality of foolish commercial distinction. It would not be a true necessity for a jew to own a place in Israel as Hashem takes care of all of our needs and there is no spiritual need to actually OWN a piece of the holy land as the entire land is that of the Jewish People. So thus, there is a foolish method being promoted here. The best thing you can do if you want is purchase a cemetery plot for your final resting place. Smile though. Its a fascinating idea.

  2. Though your english shows high acedemic achievment, it definitely lacks any logic. By the standards you have expressed, there really is no need to make any hishtadlus in your life since Hashem will provide anyway. Being thats the case you will have no need to buy a piece of property for your grave either.
