More than 30 families who were evacuated from Amona arrived Sunday for the new town of Amichai, which was built for them in the Shilo bloc in Binyamin.

Arutz Sheva visited the home of Tamir and Yehoyada Nazri, who set up a mezuzah at the entrance to their house. "We have had a difficult year," said Nazri."Without the belief that we would get out of this and reach the settlement and the new house we would not have held. I can not sleep in the last few nights, there's excitement like the birth of a new baby. "

The families will celebrate Passover in the new house in the new town. "There is going to be a special Seder night after we have not sat together for a year and two months and we are waiting to sit at the holiday table. I hope that as soon as possible the permanent houses will be built and the land will be settled and hundreds of houses will be built here.

"Amona will be with us - 20 years of life that comes with us here... We will continue to go there because our vineyard is there. Some of us are there, but we are looking forward to the future. I thank all the Bnei Akiva members who came at the expense of their freedom to help us. This is part of the embrace that we received from the people of Israel all along," Nazri added.
