Myron Joshua has lived on Kibbutz Kfar Etzion since 1971. As he became more aware of the limitations placed on his Palestinian neighbors in Gush Etzion, Myron, along with other fellow Israelis, got involved in broadening and deepening the connection between Palestinian and Israeli residents of the area, with Roots being a central hub for such activity. Along with meeting visiting groups and planning the visits, he currently acts as a Roots' liaison to the Civil Administration. Myron's activities for peace stretch beyond Roots; he works to help individual Palestinians and has dedicated much of his activism to helping the residents of Beit Zakaria. "Of prime concern", Myron writes, "is awaking consciousness and understanding among my Israeli neighbors in Gush Etzion about the serous social and ethical implications of our continued control."
