Shlomo moved to the land of Judea and Samaria from Gush Katif (Gaza strip settlements) where he lived for 15 years. He was one of the first pioneers that opened the small businesses against all odds. He built a soap factory that delivers unique products, but he admits that life in the region is always a struggle. His small production has been affected by many crises throughout the years, but nonetheless, he believes in a better future for Israel.
There are dozens of local business owners in Judea and Samaria who are suffering because of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Due to global rerstrictions they strugle to sell their products and protect their businesses. Here are the stories from the people that are working hard to develop the Land of Israel despite the difficulties!
They have put all their effort into building their small shops and factories from the ground up in a hope to make the Holy Land thrive.
Batya and Baruch Erdstein, with their six children, live in Itamar, a community located amidst the Samarian hills. Batya is originally from San Diego, California. She has a very pleasant, easy-going and spiritual demeanor. Batya has produced some of the fine ceramic products that have been sent in Lev Haolam's Surprise Monthly Packages. We went to Itamar to interview Batya and to hear about her journey to and in Israel.
