‘Jerusalemites Must Learn about Gush Katif’


Rabbi Yaakov Halperin toured the Gush Katif museum in Jerusalem on Tuesday, in honor of the anniversary of the passing of the biblical matriarch Rachel. Rabbi Halperin, a leading figure in the Jerusalem municipality, called to teach Jerusalem residents the history of Jewish life in Gaza.

“Our task must be to bring the various segments of Jerusalem society together and to make them familiar with Gush Katif’s legacy and the rich history of Jews in Gaza,” he said. “We must not forget what happened.”
