ABOUT US

At Heritage Resources we believe that we all have a heritage, something from the past which gives us a better understanding of who we are, both individually and nationally. Therefore our personal and national histories are important. 

Our main desire and purpose at Heritage Resources is to illustrate the link between us, both individually and nationally, to the land and the people of Israel. Jewish people have a natural heritage in and connection to the land of Israel and all confessing Christians also have a natural heritage in the land of Israel and with the people of Israel through their being in covenant with Jesus, who is a Jew according to the flesh.

 

​Many nations also have a heritage in the land of Israel. Throughout the centuries numerous nations have fought in or over the land of Israel while others have had economic or spiritual connections to it.

 

With the beginning of the modern period (from the year 1798), the European nations and the United States of America became actively involved in the land of Israel, both geo-politically and through Evangelical Christian activities. In addition, tens of thousands of soldiers from Britain, Australia & New Zealand (the ANZACS), India, South Africa and the Commonwealth fought or were stationed in the land of Israel, especially during both World Wars.

 

​At Heritage Resources we explore these connections and events and present these links and rich heritage through a variety of medias.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Heritage Resources has been established by Kelvin Crombie, an Australian who lived in Israel for almost twenty-five years. 
Kelvin developed a childhood interest in Israel while reading of Australia’s military involvement in the Middle East during both World Wars. This awareness was triggered by the service of two uncles who served in the Middle East during the Second World War and particularly in one uncle who died at Tobruk in 1941. He also gained an early interest in the Australian Light Horse (mounted infantry) involvement in the Middle East. The Australian and New Zealand soldiers were known as ANZAC’s. In 1988, he pioneered the In Step with Allenby and the Light Horse tours down to Beersheba to show others how the combined Anzac and British forces had captured this strategic town on 31 October 1917 and later included the Galilee. He has written many books and produced several documentaries on the subject matter and subsequently has been asked to lead many groups and official delegations.

It was while he was in Israel, at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, that he heard more about Jesus and his Jewish heritage and ultimately became a follower of Jesus. His interest therefore expanded from his ANZAC heritage to the heritage of his faith and what he learned from living and serving in the Land of the Bible.
Kelvin married Lexie and all four daughters were born in Israel. Kelvin's eldest daughter, Orit, has been running tours to Israel since 2014 with Heritage Resources. Kelvin worked for CMJ Israel for many years as a guide, manager and author, most of his work based out of Christ Church - the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East. He has written many books and produced documentaries on their work over the last two centuries around the world.
