When David Ben-Gurion, one of the founding fathers and true pioneers of the modern state of Israel retired, he went to Kibbutz Sde Boker in the Negev Desert. There he spent his final years. And there he said, “It is in the Negev that creativity and pioneer vigor of Israel shall be tested.”

To this day, Israelis pioneer in southern Israel, in the Negev, even as terrorist rockets from Gaza target them. But these pioneers have people like YOU, who stand for Israel and support them through The Fellowship. Thank you. Shabbat shalom, friends.
