A Visit With Shmuel: Avigayil

Join me now, as I enter Avigayil...

This is my very first visit to the community of Avigayil – a community in progress. Located in a predominantly barren region in the Hebron Hills, Avigayil is surrounded on all sides by hostile Arab villages, including the large city of Yatta. The community was established in 2001, during the height of the Second Intifada, by a small group of incredibly courageous pioneers committed to defending their Biblical inheritance. 

While this budding community is still relatively small and primitive, its story demonstrates the constant struggle the Jewish people are facing in their ancestral land. With Arab illegal land seizures and construction, the people of Avigayil are engaged in a never-ending battle to possess every inch of their land.

After more than two years, I am thrilled to finally welcome our first tour groups. I hope to see you all here in Israel soon, where I can take you on a tour of Avigayil and introduce you, in person, to its dedicated pioneers. Until then, please join me for this virtual tour for a taste of this community in the Hebron Hills.

God Bless,
