This family is certainly worthy of an Extreme Makeover Home Edition! Does anyone know if there is an Israeli version of Extreme Makeover Home Edition? This home certainly deserves a nomination!
Any ideas of serious fundraising is most welcome!

The pictures include the Hacohen's kitchen, bedroom, bathroom all converted from this one bus. AMAZING!
Letter from Rachel Hacohen
We, the HaCohen family, have been living on Givat Gal for almost 5 years. Prior to arriving here from Beit El, we had lived in a private home with our 9 children. My husband worked full-time, as well as my having provided infant daycare. However, our idea and ideal was to establish a new settlement for the sake of Am Yisrael, in Eretz Yisrael. When the opportunity arose, we chose not to live in the established community of Kiryat Arba but rather to outfit and live in an old city bus by ourselves, with our 9 children, on an uninhabited hilltop, adjacent and overlooking Kiryat Arba-Hevron. At present, B"H, we are already 5 families living on the hillside known as Givat Gal, with 2 families in permanent homes, 1 building anew, 2 caravans and ourselves, with our ultimate goal being, to be one of the new neighborhoods of Kiryat Arba.
