Who we are

Rabbi Shmuel and Rebbetzen Chana Veffer started Village Israel with a strong belief that the needs of Jews in the diaspora who were looking for a “foothold” in Israel could be served in new and better ways.

Village Israel is not just a "Real Estate" company. Someone dreaming to own a home in Israel needs someone in Israel they can trust, who can help do the legwork and research needed to take this exciting step.

What we do

Our network of English-speaking professionals will help you:
* locate your ideal home
* organize mortgage financing
* negotiate a contract
* refurbish or redecorate
* find short- or long-term tenants
* manage your property
