BEIT YATIR

Established in 1979, Beit Yatir was the first community established in The Southern Hebron Hills Region. At 900 meters above sea level, it overlooks the beauty of The Judean Desert and the broad expanses The Negev.

A religious, agricultural moshav, Beit Yatir no longer requires new families to commit themselves to the cooperative framework. Should the new members want to engage in agricultural activities, they include fruit orchards, a packing house, hothouse flowers and others, the most well-known being the Yatir winery. However, they can also feel quite comfortable working in their individual professions in and outside of Yatir.

Among the 70 families living in Beit Yatir are native-born Israelis and olim from France, Russian, Brazil and English-speaking countries.

In addition to the day care center and mainstream kindergarten, there is also a special kindergarten for children with special needs. Children travel to the regional elementary school in Sussia where boys and girls learn in separate classrooms and continue on to junior high and high school in neighboring Kiryat Arba

The pre-army preparation program in Beit Yatir is director by Rabbi Moshe Hagar and attracts a large group of young men every year. Approximately 80 students learn there every year with many coming back to live in Beit Yatir after their army service

Adults in the community share in many activities including Torah study, hikes and lectures while children participate in after school groups such as many forms of music, art, chess and martial arts. Bnei Akiva also holds regular activities

Some of the community facilities include a Beit Midrash, a synagogue with one minyan on weekdays and two minyanim on Shabbat with nusach sefarad and ashkenaz, a mikve, sports fields, a library, medical clinic and grocery store

Directions:Beit Yatir is located on Highway 60 from Jerusalem and Highway 40 from Beersheva

Travel time from Jerusalem is approximately an hour, from Beersheva 40 minutes and 25 minutes from Arad
