Ateret Cohanim, an organization which works to protect Jewish property rights in Jerusalem and to redeem Jewish real estate in and around the Old City scored a legal victory Sunday, when a Jerusalem court accepted the group’s demand that property in eastern Jerusalem be returned to its Jewish owners.
The property in question was part of the ‘Kfar Hashiloah’ neighborhood: a Yemenite Jewish community established in the area in the 19th century which was destroyed during Arab riots prior to the establishment of the State of Israel. During Jordan’s occupation of the area beginning in 1948, the property was seized by local Arabs, becoming part of the Silwan neighborhood.
Americans For A Safe Israel gives a big Yasher Koach to Motti Dan and Daniel Luria and all the dedicated staff of Ateret Cohanim, not only for this enormous legal victory, but for their tireless and ongoing work to reclaim Jewish land and return it to Jewish hands.
This organization has our full support and plays an integral part in every one of our Chizuk Missions to Israel.
