Our movement is dedicated to safeguarding our G-d given Biblical homeland. We are a registered Israeli non-profit organization.
Women for Israel's Tomorrow, popularly known as Women in Green, founded in 1993 by Ruth and Michael Matar, is a grassroots movement of women and men, young and old, secular and religious, all bound together by a shared love and concern for the Land of Israel. We are a registered Israeli non-profit organization with friends and supporters in Israel and abroad.
Our movement is dedicated to safeguarding our G-d given Biblical homeland.
"Eretz Yisrael Le'Am Yisrael" "The Land of Israel belongs to the People of Israel" is our motto.
We are popularly known as "the Women in Green" because of the green hats we wore in our campaign against the abandonment of parts of our homeland and to the return of Israel to the "Green Line", the pre-1967 borders.
We act out of the belief in the central role of the Land of Israel to the future of the Jewish People.
We promote our educational messages in very practical ways.
- We plant trees on state lands in Judea to safeguard the lands for future generations.
- We returned a Jewish presence to the former Israeli army base of Shdema overlooking the strategic highway between Jerusalem and Tekoa by holding weekly educational and cultural activities there for years. We continue showing a presence every week on Friday morning with fascinating lectures.
- For the past 18 years, we've revived an ancient custom of encircling the gates of the Old City of Jerusalem on Tisha B'Av eve to express our loyalty to Jerusalem, Israel's undivided united capital.
In addition to our almost daily activities on the ground, Women in Green together with others are advancing a grassroots apolitical historical initiative to re-apply Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
Three major conferences on this topic, with hundreds of participants, were held in the past three years, in Hebron and Jerusalem.
Lectures can be viewed on our movie channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/NashimBeYarok/videos?view=0
In addition we published SOVEREIGNTY, a political Journal and distribute it in hundreds of thousands of copies , in Hebrew and English, all over the country and to politicians and public opinion makers in Israel, the US and Europe. Issue no. 2 of Sovereignty can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on www.ribonut.co.il
Thank G-d, we are far from alone: there is tremendous popular support, in Israel and abroad,for the natural proposition that the Land of Israel belongs to the Jewish People.

In the famous Biblical story of the spies sent by Moses to scout out the Jewish People's entry into the Land of Israel, a leader arose to dispel the fear and discouragement that the spies sowed.
He proclaimed "Let us by all means go up, and we shall gain possession of it." Our message and blessing to you is the same.
