Sarah Nachshon, the wife of the painter Baruch Nachshon, told of the struggles of the beginnings of settlement in Kiryat Arba-Hebron. The couple came to Hebron upon the recommendation of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who told them to live in the City of the Patriarchs, specifically. When their first son was born, Sarah led the subterfuge that enabled her to have her son's brit milah - to bring him into the covenant of Abraham - in the Cave of Machpelah. When their second infant son died in a tragic case of crib death Nachshon decided to bury him in the ancient Jewish cemetery of Hebron. The Defense Minister absolutely refused. Nachshon came to the cemetery with her dead infant and with a large crowd following her. The military commander there could not halt the funeral procession and the burial in the cemetery. Nachshon's infant was the first of the Jews to be buried in the ancient cemetery in modern times.
With Her Dead Baby in Her Arms, Sarah Renewed Jewish Burial in Hebron
This past Friday, February 15, dozens of supporters of the settlement enterprise gathered for a lecture delivered at Shdema, this time by Sarah Nachshon, the wife of the painter Baruch Nachshon, and one of the leaders of the community of Kiryat Arba-Hebron. After the end of her lecture, in which Sarah told of the struggles of the beginnings of settlement in Kiryat Arba-Hebron, the participants planted five trees in memory of the five members of the Fogel family, may the L-rd avenge them, on the second anniversary of their murder.
In her lecture Nachshon told the story of the moving and heroic struggle that led to the opening of the Cave of Machpelah for Jewish prayer and events.
The couple came to Hebron upon the recommendation of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who told them to live in the City of the Patriarchs, specifically. When their first son was born, Sarah led the subterfuge that enabled her to have her son's brit milah - to bring him into the covenant of Abraham - in the Cave of Machpelah - all while the official announcement said that the circumcision had been conducted in the Military Administration building, and while the large crowd that had assembled waited there, the brit milah was secretly conducted in the Cave of Machpelah. The guests received with understanding and joy the report that the brit milah had been conducted, albeit without them, in the Cave of Machpelah.
When their second son was born, the Nachshons came with their infant son to the Cave of Machpelah, where they began the circumcision ceremony. The local commander arrived in the middle of the event and ordered the immediate cessation of the event, so as not to harm the feelings of the Arabs. With no other choice, the participants were forced to continue the brit milah ceremony in the adjoining building, the "Settlers Restaurant".
Five months later, the infant died in a tragic case of crib death. Nachshon decided to bury him in the ancient Jewish cemetery of Hebron. The Defense Minister at the time, Moshe Dayan, absolutely refused, but this refusal did not deter her from her original intent.
Nachshon came to the cemetery with her dead infant, and with a large crowd following her. The military commander there could not halt the funeral procession and the burial in the cemetery. Nachshon's infant was the first of the Jews to be buried in the ancient cemetery in modern times.
After they heard this moving story, the participants went out, still with tears in their eyes from emotion, to plant memorial trees on the hill opposite the gate of the community of Elazar , in memory of the members of the Fogel family.
During the course of the planting event, the participants received word that Arabs and extreme leftist activists and anarchists had gathered at one of the entrances to nearby Efrat.
The heads of Women in Green, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar, sum up the events and draw a connection between them: "In the morning we received a reminder from Sarah Nachshon that Eretz Israel is acquired only through struggles, establishing facts on the ground, self-sacrifice, and exceptional activity. So it was in the 1970s, and so it is now."
The two add that "now, when Barack Obama is on his way to Israel, and the pressure on the State of Israel to make further concessions is increasing, we give a reminder with these plantings in memory of the Fogel family, may the L-rd avenge them, who are the people with whom they want us to make peace, people whose entire goal is to murder us and remove us from our land. The only solution is a return to the basic Zionist vision, taking hold of the land, plantings, and the application of sovereignty over the entire area."

These days, final preparations are being made for the fourth Sovereignty Conference, which will be held on Sunday, the 16th of Tevet, February 12th, in conjunction with the periodical Basheva (and will be broadcast live on Arutz 7). In this conference as well, in which ministers, members of Knesset and public figures will take part, the various ideas of how to promote sovereignty will be presented. However, in contrast to previous conferences, in this conference, Matar and Katsover intend to outline a plan that will offer a first response to the challenges of sovereignty.
Palestinian leaders preach nonstop hatred of Jews and continually incite murderous violence against them. Palestinian schools teach children of every age that suicide martyrdom must be their highest goal. These attitudes are deeply ingrained in their culture, and getting their own state wonít change them. In fact, any Palestinian state would almost certainly be taken over by Hamas, whose charter explicitly calls for the death of all Jews everywhere.
The government of Israel has evacuated Amona Ė Does the Left or the world like us any better? Do they respect us more? Isnít it better to apply the law in Judea and Samaria, to absorb exactly the same condemnations that we get in any case, but to do it to rescue the Land of Israel and Amona as part of it?

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
