The benefactor (father of Gilad) had the vision to give the young people who established the yishuv the tools to support themselves. They learned in kollel half a day and learned building skills the other half. Using caravans as a base, they built their own homes, putting their learning into practice and increasing their skills in the process. The result is a close-knit community with a great deal to offer in building the Shomron.
