About the Kibbutz
Yad HaShmona is is a small moshav shitufi in central Israel, located in the Judean Mountains near Jerusalem. It was founded in 1971 by a small group of Finnish Christians, and was named for eight Jewish refugees who were handed over, by the Finnish government, to the Nazis in 1942.
Population: approx. 20 families.
The community runs a guesthouse, convention center and banquet hall. A biblical village was inaugurated, and a Biblical garden planted on the hillside, which replicates agriculture in ancient times. Apart from tourism, the economy is based on carpentry.
The moshav is a home to Christians, and has become a center of Messianic Jews in Israel.
