The High Court of Justice is on the verge of destroying 17 homes in the Netiv Avot neighborhood of Elazar, Gush Etzion. Elazar resident Tali Kaplinski Tarlow joins Josh Hasten to give an update on the situation as it is unfolding. Perhaps the Government of Israel will be able to overrule the court’s decision, but either way, the residents of Elazar are mobilizing to show support for their neighbors during this difficult period. A campaign has been launched on social media using the hashtag #17homes to give up-to-the-minute updates for those who want to get involved.
On today’s Israel Uncensored, Josh Hasten interviews Shani Simkowitz, Director of the Gush Etzion Foundation. For over twenty years the foundation has been funding all types of projects in the Gush, from security to education, to helping needy families, and much much more. Listen to the interview to learn about some of the organization’s current projects. Josh, in fact, has joined the Foundation’s team and is excited about playing a role in enhancing life in the Gush.
