During the holiday of Hanukkah, Arutz Sheva will be featuring a daily video series, “Banish the Darkness”, prepared by the Katif Center which perpetuates the communities in Gush Katif whose residents were expelled from their homes in 2005.

In honor of Hanukkah, eight former residents of Gush Katif will be shown as they light the Hanukkah candles. The residents relate to their own coping with the Gush Katif expulsion and speak of people and symbols from which they drew the strength to move on and rebuild their lives.

Before lighting the candles, the participants relate to issues and questions related to Gush Katif, life after the expulsion and to contemporary everyday life.
