Ma'ale Adumim - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In 1975, Yitzhak Rabin approved a plan to upgrade the site and build an urban civilian settlement there. It was designed as a planned community and suburban commuter town to nearby Jerusalem, to which many residents commute daily. The first 23 families moved into Ma'ale Adumim on the seventh night of Hanukkah, 1975, although the town was recognized officially only in 1976. The chief urban planner was architect Rachel Walden. It achieved local council status in March 1979. The mayor of Ma'ale Adumim is Benny Kashriel, recently elected to a third term by a large majority."
