On Saturday, October 7 2023, Hamas terrorists launched a brutal attack on the Israeli communities of the Gaza border region, including cities, towns, kibbutzim and moshavim. Each one of these communities has thousands of stories to tell. These are stories of pioneers, stories of heroism, stories of overcoming all odds, and stories of national revival. In honor of the people of this region, we have decided to tell the stories that reveal their unique history, their incredible creativity, as well their undeniable bravery and resilience. This is a tribute to the pioneering spirit of these people.
