Dreyanoff House destruction, July 2015

Three years after government security forces destroyed the Dreyanoff buildings in Beit El, the developer and construction contractor recently received notice that he is one of the three contractors who won the tender to build the new neighborhood in the Binyamin region town.

In 2015 after a long legal battle, Israel’s Supreme Court issued a demolition order for a four-story building belonging to the Dreyanoff construction contracting firm. During the course of the destruction, conflicts and confrontations developed between settlers and security forces.


Dreyanoff said at the time that the demolition was not the end of the story, and that he would return to build in Beit El. His faith has finally been rewarded.

Recently, Dreyanoff was informed that he had won a tender for the construction of 34 housing units in a new neighborhood in Beit El, which is to eventually include 300 housing units.

Two other contractors, one of which is Kedma Real Estate, are involved in building hundreds of housing units in various locations around Judea and Samaria.

“After a decade without construction, we are happy and excited to see that we already have all the permits, we have finished with the tender for the contractors and we will soon begin building,” said Shai Alon, head of the Beit El Council.

Dreyanoff added, “I am happy that at this time, just before we, the Jews, mark the beginning of the new year, we are starting to build in Beit El. In recent years my family name has been associated with destruction. Now the correction has come and we will build in Beit El dozens of housing units for young couples who will come and develop the area.”
