With West Bank settlement projects on hold, many families and developers are feeling the pinch.
Jerusalem — With five kids and monthly rent topping $1,200, it didn’t take long for Ronen Mizrachi to calculate how much more he would get for his money if he moved his family out of Jerusalem.
So two years ago, Mizrachi, a lawyer, and his wife, an optometrist, purchased a piece of land in Har Gilo, a small, tranquil Jewish settlement-cum-village about five miles south of Jerusalem.
Ma’aleh Adumim, West Bank — Looking eastward to the Judean Desert’s moonscape, the hillside across the highway from this sprawling settlement looks more like a teen campground than a settler outpost.
