Welcome to Jayyus…

Jayyus is a village of about 3,700 people located in the northern West Bank, just along the separation barrier. Jayyus was the first village in the West Bank to demonstrate against the construction of the barrier, beginning in 2002, and for the last dozen years the village has been a part of ongoing disputes with the Israeli courts over the route of the barrier, which continues to prevent many farmers from freely accessing their land and crops. It is a place of deliciously fresh food, impeccable sunsets, and unending hospitality. Its also my home for the next few months.

  1. Great Sunset! Thanks for the pics… it helps imagine. Is one of the buildings where you live? This is a pretty large town… compared to Yanoon!
