The Historical Hachnassa!

Panim el Panim is proud to open its 10th year

What a very special day it was!

Thank you to all our friends that attended the historical Hachnassa at the Ammunition Hill. We are excited to unofficially announce that after the event we got first word about the paratroop committee deciding to promote a new building of a synagogue at the Hill.

American Friends of Panim el Panim


Panim el Panim started bridging the gap in the Israeli society of today 9 years ago. With the years the focus has become on outreaching to high school students, army soldiers, college students, young families, Kibbutzim and even prison inmates.


We, a group of American citizens who "drank the coolaid", just could not resist and started a 501-C3 non-profit friendship organization. We believe that this is a call of the hour for the American community. This is our chance to truly impact the future of Israel.

Panim el Panim scholars are all not just Rabbis ans esteemed scholars, but also former army officers, pilots, elite units veterans and commanders. Our scholars have a common ground with the students ans soldiers and recieve immediate recognition when entering a classroom.
