We offer our clients personalized access to Israel investment opportunities, perform due diligence, and serve as trusted "local eyes and ears" on the ground in Israel.

12 Stones Investments is led by Joseph Magen and a team of international advisors. The phrase “twelve stones” is taken from Joshua 4:4-9 (יהושע פרק ד 4-9).

Joshua said to them: " ... each one of you take up a stone on his shoulder ... that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off ... And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever.” And the children of Israel did so ... and took up twelve stones from the midst of the Jordan ...
Joshua 4:4-9
