Sitting on a hill southwest of the Sanur Valley, Sa-Nur was named by Naomi Shemer. Sa-Nur has an old British police station that served as a transitional and formation station for the settlement groups before they ascended to the ground. It was populated in the 90s by renowned artists who had immigrated to Israel from the former USSR. They established an artists’ village in the place. The police station’s first floor was used for workshops, the top floor was an artists’ gallery, and it became a tourists attraction. In 2001, the community of Sa-Nur went through another incarnation; the place that was almost completely abandoned during the Intifada became a young and vibrant religious community.
