Adora, Har Hebron


Adora, Har Hebron

Adora ( _he. אֲדוֹרָה, also Adorah) is a communal, Israeli settlement in the southern West Bank area of Judea, northwest of Hebron, and under the jurisdiction of the Har Hebron Regional Council. Ideologically, Adora identifies with the Herut-Betar farming organization. Adora is named after the biblical town Adurim, which served as one of the capital cities of the ancient Kingdom of Judah under the rule of Rehoboam. The name of the Palestinian town of Dura, located four kilometers south of Adura, is also derived from the ancient Adurim.

Adora, located at an altitude 692 metres (2270 feet), was established in 1982 as a pioneer Nahal para-military outpost and demilitarized two years later when handed over to civilians. According to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, as of 2004, it was home to 183 people.

On 27 April 2002, two terrorists entered the settlement. They attacked and killed four residents, and injured seven.
