Remembering Eran Almog O.B. M.

This past year has been a difficult one for the Almog family as well as ALEH, Eran’s extended family. The ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitative Village is missing its builder and moving force, but at the same time, Eran Almog O.B.M. continues to live on in the hearts and minds of the thousands who were inspired by him.
Relive Eran’s accomplishments in this moving video, and join us in paying tribute to his memory at his first yahrzeit this month.
