Torah Boom in Lod – 500 Families in ‘Garin Torani’


The religious-Zionist population of Lod is growing by leaps and bounds, with another 200 families joining the city’s Garin Torani “Torah seed group,” organizers report. Over120 of the new families will be living in the Ramat Elyashiv housing project.

Garin Torani groups aim to strengthen struggling neighborhoods both religiously and socio-economically. The group in Lod is now the largest in the country.
