Gush Etzion offers suburban communities 15-45 minutes away from the bustle of Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, and Beitar. Families move here for the education. Gush Etzion prides itself on its top educational system including 5 religious elementary schools. Our special education resources are considered among the top in the country. Bnei Akiva youth groups are very active here, and children experience a large measure of safe independence unavailable in cities.
Teens are an integral part of our communities, engaging in many leadership and chessed opportunities. Gush Etzion boasts top high schools experienced with olim students. A wide variety of after-school activities are available.
Empty nesters come for the vibrant senior life. There are local lectures, shiurim, trips, volunteering, and workshops galore! Many choose the Gush to be near grandchildren in nearby yishuvim and cities.
We are located in the hills of Judea, with mild summers compared to the rest of Israel, lots of vineyards and olive trees, and rich archeology.
About our yishuvim:
Neve Daniel-Elazar-Alon Shvut: Religious Zionist suburban communities with residents from a gamut of backgrounds.
Bat Ayin- A holistic, rural community with a strong Chassidic influence.
Tekoa-Nokdim- Mixed religious and non-religious population with a desert view just 15 minutes from Jerusalem.
Maale Amos and Meitzad- Growing charedi yishuvim secluded in eastern Gush Etzion and nestled in nature. Both yishuvim have a large English-speaking community. Maaleh Amos is guided by the English-speaking rabbi of the yishuv, Rabbi Charlap.
Local staff provides personalized aliyah support to help olim find the right schools, communities, and employment opportunities. Ongoing trips, programs, and support for new and veteran olim alike help make the Gush a soft landing pad!
