Join me now, as I enter Yakir...
I have visited Yakir many times, but this time I was blown away by how far it has come. Yakir is a well-established, cohesive, and active community located in the lush rolling hills of western Samaria. The largest in a cluster of three Jewish communities, including Havot Yair and Nofim. Established 41 years ago by religious Zionist pioneers who wanted to settle their ancestral land, Yakir developed from a desolate hilltop to a vibrant and warm community – 430 families strong, with five preschools, an award-winning elementary school that serves several other communities in the region, and a rich religious lifestyle. It is truly a pioneering success story!
Now that Israel is finally opening its borders to tourists, it would be my pleasure to take you to visit Yakir and introduce you in person to its dedicated pioneers. But until then, please join me for this virtual tour and get a sense of this flourishing community in Samaria.
