Programs for Jewish Shdema Continue

Professor Hillel Weiss was scheduled to discuss "The first furrow in the literature of the first aliyah" Friday morning as part of the Committee for Jewish Shdema's regularly scheduled programs at the former and future military base between Jerusalem's Har Homa neighborhood and Bethlehem.

The committee says the programs will continue in the wake of the Israel Defense Forces' announcement last week that it would renew its presence at the site, which is contested by the Jewish and Arab communities. The committee and the Women in Green organization thanked the army for creating Jewish continuity and bringing security to travellers on the highway between eastern Jerusalem and the Etzion bloc of communities south of the capital.
