Meet the Sina Family – Hadas, Yael, & Ofek
The Sina family moved from Kiryat Tiv'on to Har Amasa, in the south of the country near the Yatir forest. The heard about the community through Yael’s brother who saw a publication about the community. They went for a tour and meet members of the community and fell in love. Over 5 years ago only 10 families lived here. Now, 40 families live in this beautiful Negev community!!
Meet the Gal Family – Oren, Dagnit, & their 3 children
After Dagnit finished law school at Hebrew University, they had plans to move near Tel Aviv. They quickly realized, they wanted to raise their children in a much different environment. The had visited the Kibbutz in the past and were impressed with the diversity, the family focused environment, the nature, and the excellent education available for their kids.
Meet the Kovel Family – Tzahi, Zohara, & their 3 children
Kibbutz Nahal Oz
The Kovel family moved from the center of the country to Kibbutz Nahal Oz.
For many years, the Kovels wanted to move out of the city into a rural community. After Operation Protective Edge affected so many communities, they decided they wanted to pioneer and strengthen a community near Gaza. They toured the community during one of OR Movement’s initiatives we have with the Nahal Oz community and fell in love.
Meet the Alcheck Family
Avraham and Natasha moved to Kibbutz Yahel in search of a secluded and quiet place to live. They were impressed by the relaxed atmosphere of the Kibbutz and that anyone could find their place there. They were particularly moved that anyone could build or develop what they wanted to from entrepreneurship to hobbies with the full support of the community.
A childhood dream comes true.
Relocating to a new city is a big decision, even when it's within your own country. Meet the Katz family – they were living in a community bordering with Shomron, and were looking to move to a new community in the Galilee, a childhood dream of both Dan and Hadar. They wanted an open minded community to fit their beliefs, and values. They contacted our Information Center, which recommended Shtula. It was love at first sight. The couple felt right at home, and moved to Shtula without a job, or even knowing what they would be doing for a living.
"The people in Shtula opened their homes, and hearts to us. The view is amazing, and the air is so fresh. We immediately felt like part of the community. We may have moved far from our families, but we gained new brothers, sisters, and grandparents."
Help the Katz children, and the rest of the children in Shtula, have a safe and happy place to play:
