A mother’s insistence on burying her baby son in Hebron was a step in the direction of rebuilding the ancient Jewish city, which is now celebrating the 50th anniversary of its liberation.
After capturing and reuniting the Old City of Jerusalem during the Six Day War, the IDF proceeded to liberate Hebron, among other areas of Judea and Samaria, the biblical Jewish homeland.
Hebron, the second-holiest city in Judaism, is where the Cave of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs is located and where King David reigned before establishing his throne in Jerusalem.
It is due to the modern-day heroes, determined to rebuild Jewish life in Hebron, that the city remained under Israeli sovereignty and is home to a vibrant Jewish community.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Hebron, the story of one heroic Jewish woman who played a pivotal role in the resettlement of Hebron is worth hearing.
