When did Jews live in YESHA?
Did you know that Jews have not only yearned for, but have actually lived throughout Judea & Samaria for almost 4000 years?
Jews have lived in Judea & Samaria for a very long time, in fact it was 3,800 when the first Jew lived in the region. We are so connected to this land, that we are called Jews (in Hebrew, Yehudi) for the same reason that the land is called Judea (in Hebrew, Yehuda). So why is it controversial for Jews to be living in this region of the world? Because Jews have not been permitted to live in this region continuously for a long time, and…old habits are hard to break.
Jews have lived in Judea & Samaria in three different periods and are preparing to embark on a fourth.
