Mazal Tov to the Zimerman family on the acquisition of a new cow!

They are now producing their own yogurt cheese and other milk products. It is highly recommended that you come and visit their farm.

Mazal tov to Shmuel Odeser on
completing his army service!

Itamar is blessed with a lot of young men that have recently completed their service in the Israeli army. They are all sons of Itamar families that served in fighting units in the IDF.

These young idealistic men want to follow in their family's footsteps by building their home here on Itamar as well. We admire every one of them and wish them all tremendous success in all their endeavors.

The Itamar summer camp has been just an amazing success with a lot more fun to follow. Our teenage campers even made a caf×™ where adults came to enjoy the cakes they baked and tables were set up for panels of discussion for all the members of the community to brainstorm together ways to improve life on Itamar.

We want to thank again for all our wonderful friends that have helped us to make this a reality. Special thanks to Rabbi Lefkowitz and Eddie Wunsch from the Anshey Chesed Shul of the five towns who have for the last several years personally adopted this project.

An Itamar Engagement and Summer Camp

Mazal tov to the Ronsky and Melet families on the engagement of their children Eitan and Adi. Eitan and Adi were both living on Itamar since birth.

We wish them many more happy events. The Ronsky family is one of the founders of Itamar. Rabbi Avi andRonit are parents of 6 children. Their daughter,Adi, is their youngest and with her coming wedding will leave the Ronsky children all married! Rabbi Avi served as the chief Rabbi of the Israeli army for four years and is the head of the Itamar Yeshivah. Ronit his wife is an amazing artist. They both have been a tremendous asset to the Itamar community over the years. The Melet family is a very modest family who has been working in agriculture for many years. They own an olive press and a flour mill and are part of those that give Itamar its organic name!

The Itamar summer camp program is in full swing. This week our teen girls went to Bat Yam on the "Chesed Bus" that focuses on doing good deeds for the community at large and decided to meet with the elderly, serve them lunch and help them with chores.. They brought them gifts and connected with them through a joint arts and crafts workshop. It was extremely successful!

This Shabbat they are on a seminar focusing on the 3 weeks between the 17th of Tammuz and TishaBa'Av at kibbutz Merav in the Jordan Valley.
