Historically, the region south of Jerusalem served as a protective shield connecting Ein Gedi in the Judean Desert with Jerusalem. In recent history, crucial battles with Israel were fought in this area.

Learn about the connection between Gush Etzion, Israel’s War of Independence, the liberation of Jerusalem, and Jerusalem’s current security interest in this region.

We will examine alternatives regarding realistic solutions to complex land issues. We will meet terror victims from local communities and visit Arab families living at the foot of Herodion.

“My experience was surreal and great. The beauty of the area and the possibility of peace if our minds are positively applied to it. Mr. Bedein does his things after careful strategic thought and plan”.
