This week a memorial service was held on Itamar for Yosef Twito , Rachel ShaboIMG_0214 and her three children Neriah, Tzvika, and Avishay that were massacred on Itamar  in June 2002 when a terrorist entered the community. Yosef Twito, the former head of the Itamar response team, was killed as he ran to try and save the Shabo family.




This week we welcomed the visit of our dear friend Alan Nussbaum and David Danzer who came to tour Itamar and its surroundings. IMG_0210Despite the present security situation they were not afraid to travel as they wanted to show their support and solidarity for our community. They got a chance to see some very special places like the lookout point of Joseph’s tomb on Mt. Grizim. They had lunch at the Brachah winery and tasted some of their finest prize winning wines. They enjoyed it so much that they want to come back again next week!
