Farms in Gush Etzion

The Gush Etzion Lands Authority invites you to take part in Zionism in the year 2021!

Under the surface and outside of the media spotlight, there is a daily war taking place over lands in Judea and Samaria.

In the exact spot where our ancestors walked for thousands of years, every day there are attempts by hostile neighbors to damage lands, steal, and take over strategic assets including Jewish land reserves.

The Gush Etzion Lands Authority took upon itself the goal of protecting and guarding the lands of Gush Etzion and to establish agricultural farms in strategic locations throughout the area, so that there will be a contiguous Jewish presence along the most important ridge line in the country. This battle has been going on for years.

This is where Zionism is in the year 2021!

One or two families live in each farm, under difficult conditions, but with great belief in their purpose.

The agricultural farms are located in open areas and in order to provide security for the Zionist pioneers who live there, we are seeking to provide them with essential high-tech security equipment, which will keep them safe on a daily basis.

We invite you – lovers of the Land and of the Nation of Israel, to participate with us and take part in this important project to keep these farmers safe, and assist them in safeguarding our land.

We would like to show these brave families that we are here for them!
