Elon Moreh

(1975)


Elon Moreh was the location of the first of many confrontations to come between the government and Jewish settlers. It was provoked when a group of Jews established a settlement without government permission on the hilltop of Elon Moreh in November 1975. A month later, the settlers agreed to a compromise and evacuated the area and moved to a nearby army base.
