The Gush Etzion Heritage Center preserves the heritage of the region and history for future generations by creating an interactive experience at the site. Visitors can hear personal stories about the founders, explore a reconstructed wartime communications trench, and
watch a film based on letters written by the men who remained in Gush Etzion to their families who were evacuated to Jerusalem. Additional exhibits include the actual bunker where the defenders hid and were massacred. We are now raising funds for the renovation of the final hall which will showcase Gush Etzion today. This will include a refreshment stand, renovated restrooms, office space, and a gift shop with products made in Gush Etzion.
The entrance of the Heritage Center is dedicated to the memory of Sgt. Uriel Peretz Liwerant (z”l), a tank commander from Gush Etzion who was killed during maneuvers in the Golan Heights in 2009.
