This video is dedicated to Ariel, a sprawling Jewish community constructed in 1978 on land liberated in the Six-Day War.

Ariel was established in 1978 by a group of 40 courageous families who wanted to build a Jewish city in Israel’s historic heartland.

The site was chosen over other locations because it is strategically placed in the path of a potential invasion from the east by any foreign army intending to attack Israel’s coastal plain.

While anti-Israel organizations claim that Ariel and other Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are an “obstacle to peace,” this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Don’t miss this video about Ariel – the city and the people who call it home.
