Residents of the Amona outpost began Thursday to lay the foundation for a permanent synagogue on the site of their 10-year old community. "It's a symbolic act," which was marked by a stone laying ceremony in the afternoon with residents of Amona and the neighboring Ofra settlement, said Amona spokesman Ariel Kahana. In spite of the violent clashes between right wing activists and police Wednesday prior to the destruction of the first nine permanent homes on their site, the community wanted to show that it believes in its future by embarking on a new construction project, said Kahana.
