You Can Make a Difference for Thousands of Israelis in Need
In the Shadow of the First Intifada
Israel, 1993. Barry Segal received a powerful vision. He saw that Israel would experience a time of great plenty—followed by a period of great struggle. He knew that something had to be done to prepare—to provide for the poor and needy, who would be hit hardest by the instability. Along with his wife Batya, he founded Vision for Israel with this lofty mission in mind. This young ministry began reaching out and offering financial aid to poor and needy families around Israel. A couple of short years later, the story took a tragic turn when the Segal family was touched by the pain that affected many Israelis. Barry and Batya’s daughter lost three teenage friends in a bus that was attacked by a Hamas suicide bomber. In addition to this loss, another girl who served as a soldier in one of the platoons she instructed was killed in a separate attack on the same bus route. These were the buses that she had ridden each week. During Passover season, Barry and Batya responded by assisting the families torn apart by terrorism, leading to what would become one of VFI's most important tasks—assisting families who are victims of terror and rocket attacks. In the following years, Vision for Israel expanded to include other desperately needed humanitarian services for Holocaust survivors, at-risk kids, and many others in need of help in Israel.
Meet our amazing board members.
What our supporters and partners have to say.
We have been in cahoots with Barry and Batya since... 1998. A big heart for Yeshua, worship, the nation of Israel, and the poor and needy in The Land always seem to go hand in hand in the Segal's lives, combined with a clear prophetic message about the church and the place of Israel in these end times. We have seen first-hand how big their vision is and how incredibly hard they work. The fact that Vision for Israel and The Joseph Storehouse is allowed to distribute goods even in times of lockdown, speaks volumes to their high standing with government officials across the board.

It has been my privilege to have known Barry and Batya Segal for many years and to have served on their boards in both the UK and USA. Integrity is so important today and my years of observation of Barry and Batya, and the work they do through Vision for Israel, is that integrity is the key. No airs and graces. No superstar celebrities. Just working hard for the Lord they serve. As they combine worship and teaching and service to the community throughout Israel, I see the hand of God upon them and their lives. I am blessed to recommend their work to others.

“There are many organisations in Israel and elsewhere that do this type of work, but I have found a home helping Vision for Israel. To me, it is the best organisation there can be for this type of work. I always pray and ask for special blessings to be given to them and I believe that is happening.”
