Event start: 2pm UK/ 4pm Israel

On this personal perspective tour, we join StandWithUs Israel Fellowship director, Yoni Shaked, on a tour of Netiv HaAsara. Situated a mere 400 meters from Hamas-controlled Beit Lahiya, Netiv HaAsara holds the distinct honour of being the Israeli community closest to the Gaza Strip. Born and bred in this pastoral agricultural moshav, Yoni offers an authentic local perspective on life in this volatile region. Together we will explore the beauty of Moshav life, current threats, the inspiration found in living in the Gaza Envelope, and more.
