(Palestine) journal Journal of the Palestine Oriental Society volume 1 year 1920 pages 95–102 The settlement of Alon Shvut was planned by Moshe Moskovic, who had been a member of the Masu'ot Yitzhak settlement in the Etzion Bloc before 1948. The army invited him back to the area in the immediate aftermath of the Six-Day War. He set forth a plan for the reconstruction of Gush Etzion as a regional centre, envisaging a business centre to service agricultural settlement, a tourist centre and educational institutions with dormitory facilities for students from all over the country. The educational structures would consist of (a) a High Yeshiva in a military framework (Nahal), (b) a Jewish study academy, (c) a seminar for activists and (d) a school for teaching Har Hebron. Esther R. Goshen-Gottstein, ''Surviving widowhood,'' Gefen Publishing House Ltd, 2002 p.5 Yigal Allon became its political sponsor, and paved the way for the realization of Moskovic's programme, which was designed to replace the demolished Masu'ot Yitzhak with a new community, Alon Shvut. Funding came directly from the government, and from the Rothschild Foundation (Rothschild family). Half of the surviving members of the prewar settlements of Masu'ot Yitzhak and Ein Tsurim, preferred not to return. Esther R. Goshen-Gottstein, ''Surviving widowhood,'' pp.9–15,47. The first settlers moved in on 25 June 1970, and the official founding ceremony was held on the 5th. of July. Gorenberg, p.401 n.75 From the outset it was conceived of as a combined educational centre and a residential quarter for families associated with the then-nascent Yeshivat Har Etzion hesder yeshiva, an institution that by special arrangement with the government combines a five year programme of religious study with army service. Graduates from these Gush Etzion yeshivot make up a disproportionately high percentage of fighting men in the elite units of Israel Defense Forces. Esther R. Goshen-Gottstein, ''Surviving widowhood,''pp.1,12. It developed as a communal and service center in a predominantly agricultural region. For many years Alon Shvut housed the only health clinic, grocery, post office and bank in the area. 2014 Alon Shvut stabbing attack: On November 10, 2014, a Palestinian Muslim terrorist ran over three Jews at a bus stop at Alon Shvut. He then left his vehicle and stabbed all three while they were lying on the ground. One of the victims, 25- or 26-year-old occupational therapist Dahlia Lemkus, died of her wounds. Ari Soffer, "Shocking Footage Shows Gush Etzion Stabbing Attack," ''Arutz Sheva'' (Nov. 10, 2014). Sherri Mandell, "What they didn't tell you about Dahlia," ''Times of Israel'' (Nov. 11, 2014). Legal status The international community considers Israeli settlements a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on the transfer of an occupying power's civilian population into occupied territory and are as such illegal under international humanitarian law. Education There are two kindergartens located on the moshav. School-age children are bused outside the community mostly to either Alon Shvut or Rosh Tzurim. A pre-military mechina, open to both religious and non-religious students, was founded after the year 2000. There are four synagogues in Aderet, and the chief rabbi is Moshe Dadon. After the Six Day War, he founded Yeshivat Har Etzion, a Hesder Yeshiva in Gush Etzion. The yeshiva opened in Kfar Etzion in 1968 with 30 students. After two years the institution moved to its current location in Alon Shvut. In 1971 Rav Amital asked Rav Aharon Lichtenstein to join him as Rosh Yeshiva. 20px (Image:Panzer aus Zusatzzeichen 1049-12.svg) Alon Shvut, Efrat - 20px (Image:Panzer aus Zusatzzeichen 1049-12.svg) Alon Shvut, Efrat (south circle) -

Educational and religious institutions Much of Alon Shvut's growth has been tied to the presence of Yeshivat Har Etzion. In addition to the families of faculty, many of its students have made their homes in the town. The yeshiva, housed in a large, white building overlooking the valley, also attracts many English-speaking students from around the world. Its founders are considered of the more moderate educators in the Hesder Yeshiva program and have gained a reputation of tolerance and modernity for the institute.

Established in June 1970 in the heart of the Etzion bloc, Alon Shvut became the prototype for Jewish communities in the region. It is administered by the Gush Etzion Regional Council and neighbors the communities of Neve Daniel, Elazar (Elazar, Gush Etzion) and Efrat. In 2010, Alon Shvut had a population of 700 families. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law (International law and Israeli settlements), but the Israeli government disputes this.
