Sderot   שדרות

Sderot is a good city of 20,000 people and a city the people can be proud of. A Jewish City which has in recent years been in the news because of trouble they are passing through. Although no other city in Israel passes through these things, the people here have still built themselves an excellent habitation. However 25% of these goods citizens have felt compelled to leave their homes for the security of their families and peace of mind. Today it is good for the world to have a look at this city and see it for themselves. These citizens are all worthy of special praise for their long term endurance in the face of those who are jealous of them. Let this profile be a memorial to a city in a struggle to blossom forth and show off its beauty.

Therefore today you will see the city they have built and understand that they are worthy of your of your support and should have a place in your heart.

The Maps show the location of the city on the east side of Gaza.  This is not any location but Avraham himself lived in this area. 

 “…And Abraham sojourned in the Land of the Philistines many days.”  B’resheet 21:34.

 And not only that, it is land belonging to the tribe of Judah. 

“This was the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.… . Gaza with its towns and villages....    Y’hoshua 15:20, 47      

  The weather is sunny and warm and one living here can  have the pleasure of reaching the beautiful beaches of Ashkelon in less then 30 minutes.

 

    

Even though a recent study reported virtually all the children live with measures of fear and anxiety, still they some how remain resilient. They are the cities beacon of hope.

Sderot is just another classic Israeli city in the sprouting stages of existence. Its time now to look into this fine place.

Found in their mission statement is the following,

"AMIT enables Israel's youth to realize their potential and strengthens Israeli society by educating and nurturing children from diverse backgrounds within a framework of academic excellence, religious values and Zionist ideals..." amit.il.org

One of the brightest lights shining out of Sderot is the Yeshivat Hesder of Sderot.

  

The American friends of Yeshivat Hesder Sderot will tell you among other things, 

"Yeshivat Hesder of Sderot teaches students to value their rich heritage and to apply their learning to the development of the State of Israel and the Jewish people....The yeshiva is proud to provide a solid Torah education to Jews who may otherwise have been denied the opportunity to explore their heritage due their inability to afford tuition fees..."  sderot.org.il

    

 

                                                                                                                                                                                             This Yeshiva combines Torah Study with army service in a 5 year program. From here comes forth many dedicated soldiers who serve Israel. The School is headed up by an accomplished rabbi from Long Island New York.

 

They are building a new Yeshiva building seen in the photo below which will further enhance their capabilities in providing what is already known as excellent education.
