Yedidya Harush

JNF Halutza Bnei Netzarim Liaison for Negev Community Development

Travels from Yad Binyamin

Availability: Contact JNF Speakers Bureau for availability.


JNF's Work in Israel, Positively Israel


Yedidya Harush was born and grew up in the community of Atzmona in Gush Katif. Yedidya's family relocated to Halutza after Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005. While in high school, Yedidya received a scholarship to play basketball in New Jersey while studying in a yeshiva. Upon his return home, Yedidya served in one of Israel's elite units, the 890th Paratroopers Brigade.

Yedidya and his wife Shiran live temporarily in Yad Binyamin, but his heart lies in Halutza, where the members of his former Atzmona community have relocated. Yedidya dreams of soon moving to Halutza and making Ben Gurion's dream in the Negev a reality for himself and his fellow Jews.
