Gush Etzion Junction

Gush Etzion Junction(“Tzomet HaGush”) also known as Gush Junction is a 120-dunam (0.12 km2; 0.046 sq mi) business, commercial and tourism center in the southern West Bank, which serves as the entry point to the Gush Etzion bloc of settlements. It is administered by the Gush Etzion Regional Council.

Long known as a “congenial meeting spot for Israelis and Palestinians,” in the fall of 2015 the junction was the site of about ten Palestinian attacks against Israelis.[1][2]

Gush Etzion Junction is located in the northern Judean Hills at about 950 m above sea level. The junction is a 25-meter (82 ft) diameter roundabout (traffic circle) at the intersection of Route 60 and Route 367. Nearby communities include Efrat, Elazar, Alon Shvut, Kfar Etzion, Migdal Oz and Beit Fajjar. It is a 15-minute drive to the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo[3] and approximately 70 minutes’ drive to Tel Aviv.

Adjacent to the junction on the northwest are a plant nursery, a shop selling snacks, cigarettes and lottery tickets and The Gush Etzion Winery and its mehadrin dairy/fish restaurant, BaYekev.[4][5]

On the southwest are a gas station,[6] an automotive repair shop, an electronics store, a Judaica center[3] and a Rami Levy discount supermarket.[7] Attached to the supermarket is a hamburger joint, a pizzeria and a discount clothing store, all part of the Rami Levi group. In 2015 a competing chain of supermarkets, Shufersal opened a store.[1]

As of 2007, Rami Levi had begun construction of a two-story shopping mall as an extension to the south side of the supermarket and above it.[8]

A visitors’ center is located 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the west in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion[6] as is the mehadrin dairy/fish restaurant, Gavna.[9]
