What happened to your community? We are trying to live normal lives despite our “in limbo” situation – it is not easy. There are people with no funds to build a permanent house. There are emotionally “stuck” people who have no motivation to begin the process of building a house. All in all, most of the people are working, the children are in schools and we are maintaining a regular community life.
Something good that’s happened since: On a personal level, our family grew by 10 sweet grandchildren. On a national level, instead of one Gush Katif, there will be more settlement blocs with the spirit of Gush Katif influencing Am Yisrael. We also succeeded in founding The Gush Katif Legacy Center, preserving the legacy of Gush Katif for Am Yisrael.
What do you wish yourselves? We wish ourselves success in continuing to do good for Am Yisrael, meriting to see all of the families from Gush Katif in permanent houses, seeing Am Yisrael return to all of the places which were relinquished and that we will merit the complete redemption and the building of the Temple soon in our days, amen.
