In the wake of a court ruling to demolish 5 apartment buildings in Bet El, an unprecedented outpouring of support has emanated from coalition parties, who are committed to finding a solution. Activists say that the ruling won’t lead to actual destruction of the homes because:

1.      The land was purchased from an Arab with a contract over 12 years ago.

2.      The buildings are not located in a remote location but rather within the parameters of the town of Bet El.

3.      They are full-fledged concrete edifices and not makeshift, temporary homes.

On an official State visit to Bet El, Speaker of the Knesset Ruby Rivlin was honored at the Bet El Yeshiva Center to light Hanukkah candles on the last night of Hanukkah.

Below are photos from candle lighting at the yeshiva.
