On this last day of the tour, the group arrived in Hebron to celebrate Hebron Day there with original “settlers”. Yehudit Katzover, co-leader of Women in Green and spearhead of the Sovereignty Conferences, was there with WIG co-leader Nadia Matar. Rabbi Waldman, founder of the Yeshivat Nir in Kiryat Arba, Elyakim HaEtzni, another Hebron pioneer, and Sarah Nachshon, whose remarkable courage opened the Hebron cemetery to Jews, were also present. These individuals formed a panel, over which Noam Arnon, leader of the Hebron community, served as moderator. The AFSI group heard their amazing stories about the efforts to reclaim Hebron after the 1967 victories.
