MK Avi Dichter, chair of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, former Minister of Internal Security and former Shin Bet director, visited ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran and met with residents, outpatients and staff.
Writing in the village guest book, Dichter expressed his admiration and esteem for the Negev’s outstanding rehabilitation village with passionate words.
“When Israel’s first Prime Minster spoke about blossoming the Negev, he never dreamed that the development would be above and beyond people, agriculture, industry and military bases. ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran is the cherry blossom of the Negev. The might of your sacred work is an indisputable asset for the State of Israel. The fact that Doron Almog received the Israel Prize for this achievement constitutes only the tip of the iceberg of what should be the country’s obligation to you and to the population for whom you are here.”
