Homesh: Community to Be Strengthened Despite Army Orders


The traditional pilgrimage to the evacuated community of Homesh scheduled for today (Wednesday) was cancelled by the army due to violent events in the nearby Samarian community of Yitzhar.

The ‘Homesh First’ organization announced that the community’s yeshiva (Torah Academy) will continue to maintain and strengthen the Jewish hold over Homesh  and invited the public to continue taking part in the pioneer mission by volunteering to guard the area, donating to the cause and helping out with necessary supplies.
