The cherry picking festival was held last Friday in Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim, Gush Etzion.
Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim was founded after 1967, on the remains of Kibbutz Ein Tzurim, which was destroyed by the Jordanian Legion in 1948.
Close to ten years ago, the kibbutz went through a privatization process and opened its doors to additional families, first through the rental of available houses, and later with the decision to build an additional neighborhood, Nof Tzurim, on the kibbutz grounds.
Today there are close to one hundred families ranging from young newlyweds, many young families, and even a few retired couples.
The next phase of construction is under way at Rosh Tzurim.
