On July 30, 2023, the municipalities of Gush Etzion and Efrat, in collaboration with Shivat Zion, organized the 1st Social Event for Latin Olim of Gush Etzion and Efrat.

Approximately 50 people attended the event, which took place at Oz v’Gaon and lasted for two and a half hours. 

It included group dynamics activities, an emotional and uplifting lecture on Aliyah and Zionism by Rabbi Eliahu Birnbaum, and a dinner.

During the event, people took the opportunity to get to know each other and also learned the size and significance of the Latin community in Gush Etzion and Efrat.

Attendees expressed their gratitude for the initiative, praised the event, sought information and tips regarding aspects of the klita (absorption) process, and suggested having more gatherings soon, which could include group trips, activities exclusively for Latin women, and study groups in Spanish and Portuguese.
