AMANA Housing Construction Continues

Amana was established in 1978, at the height of the heydays of Gush Emunim to act as its organizational and practical arm vis-a-vis the Jewish Agency and government bodies to erect, maintain and support Jewish residency throughout Judea, Samaria and Gaza, as well as the state of Israel.

Here is the cover of the latest July issue of its magazine:

Inside, pages 6-7, we read of ongoing construction of almost 100 new homes in the communities of Tal Menashe, Einav, Maaleh Shomron, Yaqir, Peduel, Sansana and Revava. In addition, Karmei Tzur, Tekoa and Kfar Adumim construction is planned for another 111 houses with over 60 in early planning stages.

Here in Iowa, we are explicit in describing our Amana Colonies. Even though that land was far more "stolen" than any Israeli settlement, why isn't the world pushing for us to "return" it to the Amerindians?

How many Jews live in your Amana communities?
