During the Six Day War, Israel recaptured Gush Etzion, after it had been in the hands of the Arabs since 1948. At the time, Moshe Moscovic, a charismatic and devoted Zionist leader, predicted that the Gush will transform into a center of Jewish learning.
The reality has surpassed the dream. The Gush Etzion region has been transformed into the capital of modern religious Zionism. Graduates of yeshivot from Gush Etzion make up a disproportionately high percentage of fighting men in the elite units of the Israeli Defense Forces. What compelled the residents and Torah students to leave much more comfortable surroundings in order to settle the Judean Hills?
THE GUSH is the story of these inspiring historical developments.
