From Ashes To Splendor
Larger religious Moshav with over 2500 residents established in 1970.
Just Monday night, on the eve of the day we commemorate the destruction of the Beit HaMikdash, a fire broke out in the shul in Mevo Horon. The fire consumed everything: wooden benches and chairs, Shtenders, Sidurim, Sforim and, worst of all, three Sifrei Torah.
One of the Torah scrolls was donated two years ago in memory of Shmuel Hershko Z”l, who was wounded in the Yom Kippur War, having been badly burnt during the war… and dying years later.
