      Show of Support for Judea: Standing with Eitam Hill

      As the Sukkot holiday began, hundreds made time last week to turn out and show support for Jewish settlement on Eitam Hill, in the city of Efrat. Supporters came from Jerusalem, Hevron and elsewhere in the region as well as from Efrat itself.

      Youth from Efrat quickly put up a sukkah in the area and rooftops for a temporary synagogue. A banner hanging from the sukkah proclaimed, "Obligated to Eitam, obligated to the land of Israel."
