“People are judged by the way they treat their most vulnerable citizens. Here every human being is a treasure to be loved, helped and respected. May you go from strength to strength.” – Professor Alan Dershowitz

Professor Alan Dershowitz, a leading supporter and defender of the State of Israel, visited ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village this month together with his wife Carolyn and a mutual friend.

During the visit, Professor Dershowitz proved himself very knowledgeable in the fields of special education and rehabilitation. He and his wife asked many questions and shared their personal experiences in working with vulnerable populations. Professor Dershowitz also related his grandson’s experiences in volunteering in a special needs camp, and how this has been most rewarding and fulfilling for him.

Following the tour, Doron Almog, Chairman of the village, presented Professor Dershowitz and his wife with his book “The Commitment.” The book chronicles the contribution of American Jewry to the establishment of the State of Israel, and will surely be of interest to Professor Dershowitz, a renowned champion of social justice.
