חורבן ביתך לא שכחנו
הרחיבי מקום אהלך

 

We left at noon but, being Ramadan, we could not visit people and so the shift only covered the journey along road 60 and the city of Hebron.

Immediately after the Meitar crossing, a large advertisement concerning the warehouses in the market in the industrial zone of Meitarim dominated the way.  Indeed, the complex is starting to look like Airport City. New construction in the settlements Shima, in Susiya, also Eshtamoa in a western direction, something that looks like a large tent for events. The settlements are thriving. At the crossroads leading to Area A, in addition to the large red signage, there are cute yellow signs with arrows in green and red, with a European ornate look, reports that the Palestinian Authority, for its part, also erected roadblocks inside, in defense of the entry of the Corona virus from Israel into the occupied areas..

East of the road which goes up from the gas station at Kiryat Arba, opposite the military camp, Atta Jaber's private land is fenced in  like a construction site, with a large sign on it in Rashi script: We have not forgotten your destroyed home.

Of course it is appropriate on Tisha B'Av to mourn the destruction of the Temple. The "Thieving Cossack” firmly strengthens the image of the poor Jew as he builds his homes for glory and dafke destroys the Palestinian homes. In Kiryat Arba itself, signs at every corner pointing to settlements,  the Museum of the Land of Judah, and also: in Hebron, renovating the "Peace House," which seems to have had a floor added to it but this is unclear. And there are also renovations at  "Rachel's house" in what appears to be an expansion/

And it is important to read  what it says on the sign - close up - a branch of the "Peace House" maybe: Expand your tent.

To the left of the Cave of the Patriarchs, perhaps an extension of Gutnick's restaurant, which is now advertised  as a heritage center, and the vehicle of the  Chabad mitzvahs parked at the entrance.

According to the material from the press sent by Hagit, a bridge is planned to the right of the Cave of the Patriarchs, which will access the entrance for men, Jews only of course. Border Patrol soldiers have not heard of such a plan, and Palestinian stores are closed due to the combination of Ramadan and heavy heat. The extension is divided into several prayer complexes for up to 19 people [20 people are already scheduled to split into two prayer quarters according to the rabbinical guidelines, which are coordinated with the Ministry of Health], with "standards" of Torah study at distances as required, and are numbered 1-19. Is it true that the Jews are very disciplined and civilized, unlike their cousins?
