1.Mazal Tov to the Tene family on the marriage of their daughter, Achinoam, who married Netanel this past Monday. The new young couple will be living on one of our hilltops here on Itamar!
2.We welcomed a group of tourists that came to express their solidarity with Itamar from the communities of Vancouver, Canada and San Francisco, California. Leah Goldsmith addressed the group and was warmly received.
3.A memorial service was held on Thursday for Matan Zagron who sacrificed his life at a bus stop in Ariel a few years ago. A terrorist threatened to blow up explosives on a crowd of people, and Matan, a brave soldier and officer prevented this from happening by becoming a human shield. He gave up his life so that others can live. He was 21 years old. Seen here, is a picture of Benny and Varda Zagron, the parents of Matan, together with his military brigade commander.
4.Mazal Tov to Ava Zimmerman on her 95th birthday, making her the oldest resident in Itamar. We wish her many more years of happiness and good health.
