Your Hosts – Shmuel & Chana Veffer

We made aliyah from Toronto in 1983 and spent the next fifteen years living, working and raising our family in Jerusalem. During those years we developed a passion and love for Eretz Yisrael.

In 1998 we moved to Toronto as Rabbi and Rebbetzen to help build the Village Shul community. In addition to hosting hundreds of guests in our home we gained over a decade of experience working as a speakers, event organizers and business people in the Torah world. As inventors of the KosherLamp and founders of Kosher Innovations we built a reputation for providing outstanding client service.

In the summer of 2009, we sold our business and returned to Israel. Our dream was always to live in the Galilee and chose Yavne’el because it provided all the conveniences of Tiberias, the comfort of country living and the full facilities of a religious community. Yavne’el in the lower Galilee is literally the gateway to the North and a perfect place to base your vacation.

Our home, Villa Rimona, has four bedrooms in which we host our own children and grandchildren. In addition to the Villa, there are three comfortable self-contained Zimmers with their own private entrances and gardens. We look forward to hosting you at Villa Rimona.

Here’s a recent article from the Jerusalem Post about us (click on image to download a PDF). It discusses our background and our transition from Canada to running our real-estate business and zimmers in Yavne’el. It’s a lot of fun to read – enjoy! We’d love to hear your feedback.
