Named after Shimon Bar-Giora, this organization is established to protect Jewish settlers against Arab attacks. Its members take an oath of secrecy so that the Ottomans cannot investigate and undermine its operations. When “Hashomer” is established three years later as an official guarding group of the Yishuv, Bar-Giora is integrated into it.
