      IDF Candle Lighting at Joshua's Tomb


      Samaria Council heads held a joint meeting with IDF Efrayim division Commander Guy Berger Monday, after which a Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony took place at the tomb of Joshua in the village of Hareth.

      Commander Berger spoke at the ceremony, "It is an honor to light candles here, at the tomb of the great conquerer of the Land of Israel, Joshua. Today, nearly two thousand years since the victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks, the IDF continues to facillitate the safety of the citizens of Israel."
