In response to the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, an Israeli father of six, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu legalized the victim’s community, Havat Gilad.

By recognizing Havat Gilad as a legal community, Netanyahu has facilitated better access to electricity, water and other utilities, improving the lives of its residents.

Rabbi Shevach was Havat Gilad’s rabbi and volunteered as a medic for local communities.

The prime minister said that recognizing the town was Israel’s response to the murderers¬† “who sanctify death.”
