Sansana

Sansana

The community is located in the beautiful Oranim forest which is a focal point which attracts many visitors and bicyclists. All lots for permanent housing construction were bought and many families are on a waiting list for caravans soon to arrive.

The reason for this great demand is the fact that this is a diverse community which succeeds to live modestly and respectfully, to be productive and to contribute in all walks of life. The community has a foothold on the Green Line, it organizes activities in order to unify and bring together the different aspects of the Israeli society, it produces culture on the border between mountain and desert and it teaches Ahavat Yisrael, its land and its Torah. And it all started with a dream to contribute to the settlement, which realized thanks to the will, the hopes and aspirations, and mostly thanks to actions.
