Earlier this year, I was at the protest camp in Kiryat Shemona, where the residents were being forced to evacuate their homes because of Israel’s war with Hezbollah. The leader of the local camp – who happens to be a sociologist – invited a number of speakers to address the issue. The audience included a social work professor who discussed the hopes and dreams of her students, a man from the nearby Misgav Am kibbutz whose speech was passionate about the need to keep families together in their homes, and the representative of the national network of protest camps who addressed the needs of the periphery.
One of the most moving speeches was delivered by a man in his 50s who recounted his own childhood, when his father received state help to expand their small house and accommodate his six children. He emphasized that the same kind of assistance is not available today, and that it is scandalous to force people to leave their homes for their own security when they have been there all their lives. עורך דין גירושין בקריות
