Ahead of elections, Netanyahu places cornerstone for new Samaria neighborhood

Baku, March 22, AZERTAC

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Israeli community of Revava in Samaria on Monday to participate in the unveiling of a new neighborhood, a day before Israel goes to vote, according to TPS.

The neighborhood being built will be named “Neve Achiad” after Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, 47 and the father of 12, who was killed in a terrorist attack in Ariel Square exactly two years ago while attempting to stop the attack, which was expected to be much deadlier if he had not acted.

“We are committed to our land, to the Land of Israel, I plowed this land at the age of 18, I went through all the places, just when I enlisted the whole Land of Israel was liberated, I walked here a lot, I was excited, here our ancestors walked and here we will return and build our land,” stated Netanyahu.

“The right-wing government under my leadership will continue to build in the Land of Israel, it will continue the heritage of Israel,” he added.

Shoham Israel, a company owned by real estate developer Nadav Goldstein, the brother-in-law of Rabbi Ettinger, will build the new neighborhood “Neve Achiad.”

The neighborhood will include 40 large garden apartments, in which families with children will live, a living testament for Rabbi Ettinger.

Shoham Israel is also building houses in the Neve Sha’anan neighborhood in south Tel Aviv, adjacent to the “Oz V’Emunah” yeshiva, which was established and headed by Rabbi Ettinger with a purpose of strengthening the weaker segments of society in south Tel Aviv.
