Legendary spokesman Noam Arnon takes us through four sites of destruction and rebuilding in Hebron, Israel.


1. Tomb of the Patriarchs & Matriarchs – the 3,800-year-old burial site of the founders of the Jewish people.

2. Ancient Hebron cemetery – desecrated by the Jordanians, today restored

3. Avraham Avinu synagogue – built in 1540, destroyed during the Jordanian occupation and rebuilt as a Jewish spiritual center in 1980.

4. Beit Hadassah – The first medical clinic in Hebron, later a site of the 1929 anti-Jewish massacre and today a residential center and museum.
