Itamar News July 3rd 2009
1. Itamar celebrated a Hachnasat Sefer Torah on Thursday. The Torah was dedicated to the memory of Rachel Shabo who was massacred together with her three children and the head of the response team Yosef Twito seven years ago on Itamar. Rachel was preparing the Shabbat bread (chalah) when a terrorist entered her home and opened fire on her and her young children. The torah scroll will be used in the synagogue of Har Gidon, on one of the Itamar hilltops.
