Description:
In 1948, Moshe Moscovic, along with his wife and baby, were driven from Gush Etzion by Arab legions. On June 7, 1967, when "the Gush" was recaptured by Israeli forces in the Six Days War, "Moshko," as he is affectionately known, wrote in his diary that Jews would return to the area and transform it into a center of Jewish learning. "Moshko," a dynamic Zionist leader known for persevering until he gets what he wants, went to work.

Less than forty years later, the reality is greater than the dream. The Gush Etzion region has been transformed into the capital of modern religious Zionism. Its yeshivot are headed by such Torah luminaries as Rav Yehuda Amital, Rav Aaron Lichtenstein, and Rav Shlomo Riskin. Graduates of yeshivot from Gush Etzion make up a disproportionately high percentage of fighting men in the elite units of Israeli Defense Forces. Why did such superlative leaders of Torah leave much more comfortable surroundings to come to the Judean Hills? How did this region become a center of Torah study? The Gush is the story of these inspiring historical developments.
