Itamar News Updates June 29 2018

We are happy to announce that in the last year Itamar has absorbed 30 new families! Many more want to come – Baruch Hashem!!!! The only barrier we must overcome is housing. Every house is presently occupied – we are in the process of fixing up some caravans that will house the new young couples that want to come. We are in the planning stages of building another new neighborhood.

The summer activities have begun. Recently Itamar’s women enjoyed a summer fruit cutting workshop where they learned about some unique techniques on how to cut the fruit of the land. Special thanks to the fruit cutting artist – Esther Somech.
