The “Other” Gath wins it bigtime!

Our distant neighbor, the city of Qiryat Gat (which was mistakenly named Gat/Gath when in the early 1950s the common opinion that Gath of the Philistine was located at Tel Erani), has just had some great news.

Intel (yes, that Intel…) will be investing $6 billion (!!!) in upgrading the current computer chip plant in this town. This will be largest foreign investment in Israeli Hi Tech to date!

Cool! Now all we have to hope is perhaps some of that money will seep northwards towards Tell es-Safi/Gath….

 

Shana Tova!
