The Lone tree


March 25, 2022

The tree that was pictured in the original article about Gush Etzion (Jan. 21, 2022) didn’t come with an explanation in the article. In 1948 when the people got word that an Arab invasion by regular Jordanian troops was eminent, the teenagers carried children and others walked with them to Jerusalem to safety and for 19 years between 1948 and 1967 the only thing all of those children could see was the top of that tree from Jerusalem as they longed to go back to Gush Etzion.
