I am excited to share my recent tour of the community of Nofim. Even though it is located right across the valley from our office in Karnei Shomron, I had never actually visited it before. In Hebrew, Nofim means views and I was curious to find out if reality matched the hype. And let me tell you, it absolutely did!
Tekoa, a vibrant community in the Judean Desert, desperately needs additional surveillance cameras to protect families from constant terrorist threats.

Just before Israel celebrated its 75th Independence Day, I had the pleasure of visiting the community of Kiryat Netafim in Samaria. As we drove through the neighborhoods, I encountered a heartwarming display of the residents’ pride and love for their homeland, as every balcony was adorned with Israeli flags and blue and white garlands.

The Heart of Benjamin program, in Ofra, caters to families residing in the Benjamin region, providing resources for severely disabled children and their families, and helping them navigate a myriad of educational and social challenges. During the week before Passover the program operates camps for the severely disabled children, providing structure, and a memorable camp experience.
We celebrated Purim last week and I filmed this on that day, in my own community of Zufim, enabling you to share my wonderful holiday with me. If you could not celebrate Purim in a Jewish community, then this is certainly the next best thing. Please join me as we celebrate Purim in Zufim.
Each winter we celebrate the Jewish Holiday of Tu B’Shvat, the 15th day of the Biblical 11th month, known in Hebrew as Shvat. It is a time when we all go out and plant trees, setting down roots in the Land of Israel and celebrating the return of the Jewish people to our land. This year was particularly joyous as it marked the first Tu B’Shvat after the Sabbatical year, when we did not plant any trees.
