Monument for Rabbi Meir Chai Rebuilt by Samaria Youth

Some 200 teenagers and Samaria residents participated in a festive Hanukkah candle lighting at the monument for Rabbi Meir Chai who was murdered by terrorists four years ago near the town of Shavei Shomron. The monument has since been repeatedly demolished by Arabs, and was recently rebuilt.  

Chairman of the Samaria Resident's Council Benny Katsover spoke at the event, "Such terrorist attacks serve only to reinforce our steadfast hold on our land. We do not live here for our own sake, but to declare that this land will forever belong to our nation."
