In our August issue Israel Today covered the 20th anniversary of Makor HaTikvah, the only Messianic day school in Jerusalem.
That the school has lasted so long after starting with so little is miraculous. Makor HaTikvah's sudden and tremendous growth over the past few years has been a testament to the importance of its mission - to provide a strong, faith-based education for the children of local believers in Yeshua (Jesus).
And that growth has continued through the summer. Makor HaTikvah has added more than a dozen new students to its already over-crowded facility for the coming school year. School principal Cookie Schwaeber-Issan told Israel Today that she had to turn away a number of potential students because there was physically no space for them in the classes.
Fortunately, donations have allowed the school to do a bit of renovating and purchase new books and computers (pictured below) so as to provide those students who could be taken in an enhanced learning experience.
