About the Community in Yad HaShmona
Yad HaShmona Village was established in 1974 by a group of Christian pioneers from Finland. The Israel-loving group members believe in the fulfilment of Biblical prophecies and as such sought to contribute their efforts to rebuilding a Zionist home in Israel.
Based on their faith in both the Old and New Testament and their love for the Jewish people and God, the group wanted to dedicate their settlement to the memory of eight Jewish refugees who fled the Nazis to Finland only to be extradited back to the Nazis later on, despite the strong feeling and determination of the Finnish people to defended their Jewish citizens.
The extradition of the eight Jewish refugees weighed heavily on their conscience, which led the founders to name their village ‘Yad HaShmona’ in memory of the eight Jews and publicly express remorse, not only on their behalf, but in the name of the entire Finnish people.
In the late 70s, they were joined by Jewish Israelis who believed in the Bible and the New Testament. These days Yad HaShmona is home to both Finns and Israelis, sharing peaceful community living based on their faith in the Scripture of God.
