Hundreds of people, including schoolchildren, visited Hevron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs on Monday and celebrated the 45th anniversary of Hevronís liberation in the 1967 Six Day War.

The visitors heard stories about the pioneers of Hevron and a special prayer service was held, in which visitors prayed for continued Jewish presence in Hevron.

The celebration concluded when the visitors started dancing and marching with the Israeli flag, similar to the Flag March which takes place in Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day. The dance took place near the recently evacuated Beit Hamachpela, and the participants called on the government to allow the Jews who bought the home to return to it.
