Hebron Advocate Shares Hundreds of Articles on Real Life, Love of Gritty Biblical City

Hundreds of articles detailing the real life and passionate fight of the Jewish community of Hebron to maintain their historic and modern claims to the city purchased by the Jewish patriarch Abraham have been published online.

David Wilder, the spokesperson for The Committee of the Jewish Community of Hebron, has made available almost 20 years worth of writings, revealing the personal, local, and national struggle to preserve the Jewish presence in the hotly contested city, sharing the setbacks, successes, heartbreak and hope – and most of all, the unswerving determination of the Hebron faithful.

Wilder, who has lived for the past 30 years in Hebron and neighboring Kiryat Arba, was born in New Jersey, and speaks around the world on behalf of Hebron, raising funds to develop the community and welcome guests who come to visit the Tomb of the Patriarchs – resting place of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah – and the Tomb of Ruth and Jesse.

  1. I wish the Hebron Jewish community another 3000 years of health and prosperity.

    Many leaders of this community have positions that are a P.R. nightmare.

    97% of Israeli Jews condemn the actions of Baruch Goldstein.

    It would help the Hebron community if more leaders from Hebron joined the 97% in Israel and the 99.999% outside Israel.
