In 2004, Anthony E. Westreich established Monday Properties, a real estate firm that focuses on investments, property development, and many other services. Outside of the firm, Anthony Westreich actively engages with several charities, among them the Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO).

The Women’s International Zionist Organization, together with Bridges for Peace, a Christian organization, works hand-in-hand to help acquaint Christians from all over the world with Israel, particularly Jerusalem. Every few months, new volunteers from Bridges for Peace, as well as individuals from around the world, visit the WIZO center to participate in different activities, such as helping children, abused women, and poor families in Jerusalem. These volunteers help accomplish simple tasks such as cleaning parks, collecting garbage, painting and decorating the outdoor walls of the daycare center, and performing minor physical labor around the compound. They also help build simple structures, like a shaded outdoor terrace for children to rest and play in.

WIZO’s work inspires social activism and raises awareness among other organizations as well as among Christians. Every year, hundreds of volunteers express their eagerness to participate in WIZO’s activities. The administrators of the center do their best to make visitors and volunteers understand the importance of their ongoing contributions to Jerusalem for the benefit of the whole Israeli society.
