After more than 20 years, preparatory land work is to be carried out to establish a permanent neighborhood in the small community of Ibei Hanahal, in southeastern Gush Etzion.
At the beginning of 1999, Ibei Nanahal was established with the support of the State with a nucleus of 10 pioneering Breslev Hassidic families. Over the years many more young families joined, mostly from the established communities of Western Gush Etzion. Today the community is home to around 50 families.
“We can now envision the tractors working in the field towards the construction of 96 units, which is a true Zionist endeavor to strengthen Judea and Samaria, here at the edge of the desert, as we expand our building and strengthen our presence in Gush Etzion,” said Gush Etzion Regional Council Head Shlomo Ne’eman.
