Gush Etzion Security

Gush Etzion Security

Terrorist attacks in Gush Etzion and throughout the country are on the rise. Firebomb attacks, stone throwing’s, car-ramming attacks, stabbings, and shootings take place on a regular basis. Innocent motorists, pedestrians, and average citizens, are amongst those injured or murdered.  The sense of security in the region has been undermined.

We will not allow this reality to continue!  The time has come to raise funds to protect the residents of Gush Etzion. In light of the difficult situation, we turn to you to help us fund the essential security needs of Gush Etzion and its residents.

Safety and Security in Gush Etzion

The 22 communities in Gush Etzion are spread out over a large geographical area.
