About Us


We believe that caring for orphans and vulnerable children is a mandate for the global Body of Messiah and one of the purest expressions of the Gospel. HaTikva Families equips families to respond to the OVC (orphan and vulnerable child) crisis in Israel through adoption and foster care and encourages the Israeli Body of Messiah to take a leading role in this effort.

Yet there are only 120 adoptions per year.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:
to look after orphans and widows in their distress..."

James 1:27


Adoption is a cause that is close to our heart because it is close to the heart of the Lord. God recently finalized one of the first Messianic Jewish adoptions in the history of Israel. HaTikva Families is supporting this family and their two beautiful children who are now joined with their forever family. Click to hear their beautiful story.

We are so thankful to God for the amazing gift of Joshua and Lisa in our family...

“Take up the cause of the fatherless…”
Isaiah 1:17
