Shiloh: Shiloh is a religious community-style Yishuv established in 1978. The original founders strived to establish a community that would live its life in the spirit of the Torah and continue the tradition of the spiritual center that existed in Shiloh during the period of the Mishkan (Tabernacle). There are about 400 families living in the Yishuv, which serves as a regional center in terms of schools, agriculture, shopping and employment, for all of the smaller Yishuvim in the area. Shiloh is a significant point of attraction for families interested in building their homes and joining the community, and it has several construction initiatives that are expanding its borders. for further information: https://www.binyaminregion.org.il/shilo/
Gush Talmonim-Dolev: Gush Dolev Talmonim is composed of 5 communities located in high proximity to each other: Dolev, Talmon, Neriya, Kerem Reim and Harasha. The population in these communities are on the Orthodox to ultra-Orthodox spectrum, and they offer a variety of housing opportunities, including single-family homes, duplexes and semi-detached homes. The warm and welcoming nature of these communities is a wonderful asset in the process of Aliya and acclimating into Israeli society. There are many English-speaking families in each of these communities. The breathtaking landscapes, comfortable climate and nature reserves nearby are also some of the benefits of choosing to live on Israel’s countryside. Each Yishuv has a range of synagogues, mikvahs, excellent educational institutes from daycares to high schools and Kollels. General services include: a mini-market, event hall, gymnasium, swimming pool (open in the summer), library, Leumit health clinic, youth lounge and two playrooms for preschool children. There are local businesses that operate in the Yishuvim and local commercial centers. The communities are located very close to Modi’in (a 15-minute drive), Jerusalem and Tel Aviv (a 30-minute drive), which opens a wide range of employment opportunities as well as making convenient city services very accessible.
