1) Friday at Oz veGaon with Rina Ariel

This coming Friday, 7th of Tevet, January 6th at 9:00am, a few days
before the fast of the 10th of Tevet, Rina Ariel, mother of Hallel
Yaffa hy"d, will be speaking at Oz veGaon on the topic: "Making
progress towards the mikdash - from destruction to redemption".

Rina Ariel is a long time activist for the right of Jews to ascend to
Har Habayit. After the murder of her 13 year old daughter, Hallel
Yaffe hy"d, by Arab terrorists who murdered Hallel in her bed at home
in Kiryat Arba Hevron while sleeping, Rina has increased her
activities to promote the topic of Har HaBayit and the building of the

2)     The Jewish National Fund at Oz veGaon

There was a special Hanukah celebration last Friday at Oz veGaon. For
the first time, the Jewish National Fund came for an activity at Oz

You could sense the celebratory atmosphere as soon as you entered the
preserve. The JNF flags that were waving in the winter wind with the
warm sun overhead and songs of the Land of Israel in the background
welcomed the hundreds of people who arrived for a day of enjoyable and
meaningful experiences.

Parents and children streamed into the preserve the entire day and
enjoyed the pita baking workshops, the petting corner, the omega (zip
line), pottery making and, of course, inflatable play equipment.

The heads of the JNF Maof program spoke in a small ceremony and
promised to adopt Oz veGaon.

Earlier in the morning there was a festive musical prayer session that
ended with warm, sweet Hanukah sufganiot (donuts). A special Hanukah
lecture was given by Rav Shmuel Dinowitz on the meaning of the holiday
in the synagogue at the preserve, which was filled to capacity with
our loyal Women in Green members who come every week to Oz veGaon.

Towards the afternoon, as is appropriate for the JNF, hundreds of
seedlings were planted throughout the preserve. The mud resulting from
the recent, welcome rains added a special quality to the atmosphere.
There were many visitors, city dwellers who hadn't seen mud since
their childhood. Suddenly they felt that they had returned to the old
Land of Israel and they sensed the important significance of holding
on to the Land of Israel.

Thanks to the JNF for adopting Oz veGaon in its physical and
educational aspects.

Thanks to the local Gush Etsion council, to the field school, to the
Gush Etsion Matnas and to Elyashiv Kimhi, who produced the event with
the help of all of the relevant bodies.

Continue to follow the activity at Oz veGaon and join us!
