Jewish Hebron is not expendable!
Pesach in Hebron, 5770 - 2010
Over 30,000 people visit Hebron on Wednesday and Thursday of Chol HaMoed Pesach

The massive turnout of people to Hebron in the past few days is more than encouraging. It is a specific sign pointing to the healthy state of of the Jewish people in Eretz Yisrael, in the State of Israel. There would be those who would seek our expulsion from our homes in the first Jewish city in Israel. However, this is a small minority. An overwhelming majority of Jews in Israel understand the importance and significance of Hebron and Ma'arat HaMachpela to Jewish culture and tradition. Ma'arat HaMachpela did not need 'approval'  as a site of national heritage, being that this place is the very roots of all Jewish heritage in Israel. But it is heartwarming to again witness the tremendous love of Am Yisrael to Hebron and Hebron's Jewish community. These events spoke loudly and clearly to all Israel and the entire world:Hebron, Meaz u'leTamid - Hebron, past, present and forever.

We call on people from Israel and around the world to to continue visiting Hebron this summer, ensuring  that it will never be forgotten: Jewish Hebron is not expendable!
