Reflections from Israel

A Visit With Shmuel: Bekaot

This month, I visited the community of Bekaot, a small agricultural moshav in the Jordan Valley, actually on the Samaria foothills just above the Jordan Valley. What a beautiful place!

Yisrael Medad

Yisrael Medad, an American-born political commentator, historian and activist is perhaps one of the most vocal advocates for the settlement movement in Judea and Samaria. After becoming religious as a teenager, he became actively involved in a Zionist Youth Movement, emigrating with his wife to Israel after the 1967 war and settling in Samaria.

Ahrale Lederberg

Ahrale Lederberg, head of security and medical emergency services in Zufim, Samaria, is a man who is all heart. In the IDF, Ahrale served as a combat soldier and medic, later becoming a commander of the IDF medics training school. This is Ahrale’s story.

Community at a Glance: Mechola

This is the series you have been waiting for – the chance to visit communities in Judea and Samaria, from the comfort of your home, and catch a glimpse of life in each and every community!

A Visit With Shmuel: Otniel

The people of Otniel are united in their dedication to Biblical values and Bible study, with a large number of residents working as educators in several local Bible institutions and raising the next generation of religious pioneers.
