Through its partially owned subsidiary Nofei Israel (88%), Kass Group has carried out numerous real estate projects in the settlement of Givat Ze’ev in the West Bank. The company was involved with the establishment of the New Givat Ze’ev (Givat Ze’ev Hachadasha) neighborhood in 2004, which houses over 600 families.

Response Received on January 2nd 2017, “Our company deals with selling apartments in properties in Israel and in properties in Judea and Samaria. Our company employs thousands of Palestinians every day. ￼All of the properties in construction are private properties purchased from the Palestinians. ￼We find the way the facts are presented very severe, things are presented as though we are occupying just because our company is Jewish. There is no international law forbidding us from purchasing land by law from the Palestinians, and that is what we do. ￼Any reference from any factor presenting our company as one that supports the occupation ￼or anything of that sort will be sued for defamation.Our company acts with integrity, by the Israeli law and by the international law as well.”
The company is fully owned by the private investor Hanoch Kass.
