MIZPAH

About The Name "Mizpah"

Mizpah is a Hebrew term that means watchtower. It is significant to our program because the Mizpah Benediction in Genesis 31:49 deals with being accountable to God and to each other. The Cornerstone Mizpah Program is designed for the purpose of being accountable to God and to those transitioning from the penal system.
