ARISE, the Alliance to Reinforce Israel’s Security and Economy is a U.S. 501c3. ARISE was founded in 2017 by Calev Myers. As an attorney and partner in one of Israel’s leading law firms, Calev’s unique platform enables him to interface with both the global Christian community and the Israeli government and business sectors.

ARISE has been able to connect thousands of businesses around the world with the cutting edge technology and innovation coming out of Israel. This has helped solve major global problems and plays a crucial role in Israel being a light to the nations. To date, the ARISE team has been able to help facilitate over $600 million dollars worth of transactional business through their targeted initiatives.

In times of crisis, the ARISE team kicks into high gear on the security side of their platform, acting as a voice for Israel and mobilizing the global Christian community to engage and act on behalf of Israel.







In addition to Calev’s career as an attorney in one of Israel’s leading law firms, Calev is a serial social entrepreneur. Before pivoting his efforts to ARISE, Calev founded and ran the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, through which he represented religious minorities in Israel leading to over 30 Supreme Court victories. He also spearheaded campaigns to bring awareness and changing legislation on behalf of marginalized communities in Israel, specifically lone soldiers and victims of human trafficking.




Residing in the US, Shimon oversees the day to day operations and initiatives of ARISE. Prior to pivoting with his brother to the ARISE initiative, Shimon served alongside Calev as Executive Director for the Jerusalem Institute of Justice. A bit of a renaissance man, Shimon owned and operated a jewelry design and manufacturing company in his early life. He has been a singer/songwriter with television placement, a poker professional, and currently works in film production/directing. If you can’t reach Shimon, he’s probably out on a mountain stream fly fishing.
