Eitan Aharon Steinmetz was born on the ninth of Av which was the first day of the Gush Katif expulsion, and his parents chose to call him Eitan so that the people of Israel would be strengthened despite the sorrow and destruction
Amazing!! The Tal family from the Gush Katif evacuees who now live in Nitzan arrived at the Gush Katif Museum. You will not believe it. They identified their past home in an aerial photography of Neveh Dekalim
The Gush Katif museum in Jerusalem was founded in the month of August 2008 (Av 7768) and tells the story of the Jewish settlement in Gaza from the Hasmonean period through to our time.
The museum examines the history of the Jewish settlement in Gaza over a timeline of three thousand years. It describes the establishment of the Jewish settlements following the six-day war, presents their development and achievements, and serves as a memorial to a glorious chapter in Jewish history spanning thirty-five years.
