HaMatzav is an internet resource site dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding of the political situation in the Middle East. HaMatzav seeks to collect key resources, from around the vast world-wide web, which will serve to inform and educate our visitors. HaMatzav attempts to bring a variety of perspectives forward in the context of being supportive of Israel and her right to exist within secure borders. This view supports and is compatible with the formation of an independent state for the Palestinian people. We are concerned about the many factual distortions that seem to prevail in the media. In Hebrew, HaMatzav means "the situation."
HaMatzav editors are individual volunteers with no commercial interests related to this site. We are affiliated with Temple Isaiah in Lexington, MA, but the views expressed on this site are solely our own.
