We had the opportunity to get to know different cultures in depth during their lives. With an interest in people, the joy of discovering new things and a bit of a spirit of adventure, we took on responsibility early and have been active in various international committees.

Our goal is to help people broaden their view and thereby grow beyond themselves. With the "Arc to Israel" project, we are continuing on this path of volunteerism, which began after the 1989 revolution with the establishment and management of a Christian ministry in Romania.

In his full-time job, Harald is the head of distribution and procurist for the SCM Publishing Group, while Brigitte is the human resources director for an international software company in the Stuttgart area.
We now live in Esslingen am Neckar.

represents an arc, a bridge. We want to create a connection through which people can find access to Israel.

At the same time, it is a reminder of the rainbow as a sign of the eternal covenant that God has made with his people. (Genesis 9, 13: I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth).

Therefore it became the desire of our heart to build a bridge, an “ARC”, to offer other people the possibility to experience Israel and to learn to love the people of Israel.
There are a lot of beautiful, interesting, valuable sites in Israel and many ways to discover this special country.

Meeting the people of Israel in their own land for the first time confronted us with two striking findings.

1. Having a closer look at the history of this young nation, it became obvious that the founding and survival of the state Israel, its rapid progresses and its achievements were rationally and humanly impossible, indicating the existence and support of a supernatural authority.

2. Watching the creativity, the brightness, the courage and the energy in so many people there, leads to the conclusion that this people have a special source of power.


The Bible speaks for more than 2000 years about a living God, who has chosen the people of Israel, who will bring them back into their land after they have been scattered and who will specially equip them.

However, suddenly seeing, observing and recognizing this with our own senses was a life changing experience for us.

No one told us about this before. The media in Europe deliver a very different picture. We realized that most of the people around us never heard of the happenings in Israel, which touched and impressed us so deeply.
