This month, I visited a community that is practically in my own backyard. Just a few kilometers from my home community of Zufim, is the community of Salit. Located at the western edge of Samaria, it boasts an amazing view of the Samarian mountains to the East and the Mediterranean coast to the west.
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.
