The Masu’ot Yitzchak Forest was named after Kibbutz Masu’ot Yitzchak, one of the four settlements that existed on the eve of Israel’s Independence. The members of the community fought endlessly to defend Jerusalem. The kibbutz was founded by the religious kibbutz movement in 1945 and was destroyed in the War of Independence. The bunker and house that survived remind us of the stories of the four settlements that existed in Gush Etzion during the War of Independence.
