Itamar News Updates Jan 23 2014
Itamar welcomed again Rico Cortez and his tour group from the USA and Europe. It was great hosting a wonderful group who was so enthusiastic about visiting Itamar and its Biblical surroundings. We were so inspired by their devotion and love of the land.
It was a pleasure to host our dear friends Norman Hauptman, Alan Nussbaum and friends who came with enthusiasm and always goodies to give the soldiers doing guard duty here.
We also welcomed Boaz Haetzni who brought guests from Fairfax Virginia’s Conservative
Temple. We hope their visit to Itamar added many important facts about the heartland that they can share with their congregation and community!
Tochnit Ayalot- There is a student village here on Itamar where students live in our community while pursuing their studies in University. These students also do important volunteer work here and are matriculated into the fabric of many aspects of communal life and see it as an ideal for buffing up support on the ground practically while receiving a firsthand opportunity to be part of our mission here. Thank you! We want to help out with this important program by subsidizing the program- a new endeavor for the Friends of Itamar.
