Volunteers and a limited number of family members have been allowed back into the community of Kfar Darom to salvage personal items and help pack up the 'Elei Katif' bug-free vegetable facility.

 

The outside of Kfar Darom's Synagogue, the site of stiff rooftop resistance to the expulsion.
The main sanctuary has been gutted. Some plastic chairs and a podium remain to enable prayer by volunteers helping dismantle Kfar Darom's hothouses.
Empty space and debris where Kfar Darom's 'Elei Katif' hothouses once stood.
The 'Elei Katif' factory, which packaged the bug-free greens used by Jews throughout Israel and in kosher restaurants.
Cabbages left behind.
Thousands of potatoes lie scattered about as farmers choose to load equipment onto the trucks instead of produce.
A wall of the factory is destroyed.
Members of a family are allowed back into their home to salvage property before the house is demolished.
"We Swear We Will Return to Our Home!"
Boxes of a family that did not pack before the expulsion.
An ivy-covered home slated for demolition.
The words of the song "I have no other Land," written on the wall of an empty home.
"You Could Have Said No!" "You are a human being! A Jew!!!"
