Join the discussion with former Knesset members – Nachman Shai (Labor), Einat Wilf (Labor, Independence), Michal Cotler-Wunsh (Blue and White), and Yehuda Glick (Likud) about if Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael (KKL) should buy land in the West Bank.
Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael (KKL) the Jewish National Fund, will be deliberating which areas it will purchase land in Judea and Samaria. The West Bank of the Jordan River, known as Judea and Samaria from biblical times, was in Jordanian hands from 1948-1967. During the Six-Day War, Israel gained control over the region and since that time, hundreds of thousands of Israelis have established homes in the area, mostly in three main “settlement blocs”: Gush Etzion, Ma’ale Adumim and Ariel.
This panel of former Knesset members will discuss the status of the land in the West Bank with a focus on the settlement blocs and the question of where KKL should purchase land to plant forests and build new Jewish neighborhoods in this region.
This event is in English and is open to the public with advance registration. David Yaari, chairman of United Zionists, will be introducing the webinar.
