It is now 12 years since the tragic Gaza Disengagement. Recently, on a trip to Halutza, I met Yedidya Harush, the JNF Halutza liaison, that gave me insight into his personal experience, as someone expelled from his home. His story struck me as a tragedy with hope and a lesson to be taught. When all was lost and they felt complete despair, Yedidya’s family continued to smile..to build..to live..and to never give up.
