Hundreds of people took part in a solidarity march with the Jewish Community of Hevron today, organized by the Women of Green organization.  In high spirits and waving Israeli flags, they walked along Worshippers Route, also know as Rav Goren Way, from Kiryat Arba to Hevron.  The participants also held a memorial ceremony by Erez Alley for the 12 fighters who were slaughtered in a terrorist ambush nearby almost three weeks ago.

"Several speakers addressed the crowd,"  WiG co-founder Nadia Matar told Arutz-7, "and told them that [our] enemies want to bring upon us much darkness, but on Chanukah we remember that they will not succeed, and the true Maccabees - those who live here, and those who believe in the concept of "The Nation of Israel in the Land of Israel according to the Torah of Israel" - are those who will in the end prevail."  She said that they were treated to a guided tour of the newest homes in Jewish Hevron, "homes that many of us had not even seen yet.  It is truly beautiful and inspiring, a message that AM Yisrael Chai - the People of Israel lives."
