A delegation from Great Neck, NY, led by Mayor Pedram Bral joined youth from the community of Eli in Samaria, to raise a large Hanukkah menorah over the Shiloh Valley.

The site where the Menorah was raised is an area that local youth are attempting to develop into a new community that would become an extension of the Eli community.

The delegation joined the youth to raise the menorah over the Shilo Valley, “as a testament that the Jewish people will not give up on their heritage, history and ancestral lands.”

The delegation was organized and facilitated by the Heartland Initiative.
