Chankukah Pioneers by Yonathan Gormezano
Sunday, the fifth candle of Hanukah was a big day for building new communities in the heart of the Land of Israel, and strengthening existing ones, among them Harhivi near Elon More where a new synagogue was built. Happy hanoukka, When I have time, I will put more photographs in my web album (http://picasaweb.google.com/YoniGormezano).
