About Tal Menashe:
The community of Tal Menashe is a young community that aspires to a full life in the spirit of the Torah and mitzvot. Members of the settlement emphasize Torah education and contribution to the challenges of the nation in the areas of society, settlement and Judaism. The settlement is located in northern Samaria, in the Reihan block near the Trans-Israel highway. Members of the community are involved in every field of endeavor, among them technicians, clerks, students, educators, social workers, career soldiers and high-technicians working in Afula, Hadera, Yokne’am, Haifa and other places.
To educate for a better environment: The educational system has been made top priority. The children benefit both from school hours and after-school enrichment programs, both formal and informal.
“Talelei Orot” elementary school
Members of the settlement see their involvement in society as a national goal, and volunteer for this important task. In the religious area, the community is a spiritual center for surrounding settlements. The members of the community give classes in the surrounding settlements, serve as Bar-Mitzva teachers, etc. Communities in need of these services also receive emotional support and reinforcement, which are expressed via visits, joint parties, and assistance in a variety of areas.
To live in a good society: The community numbers about 50 families in the settlement, which plans to grow to 400 housing units. Community life sparkles, including classes, clubs, events and community parties.
