Making Ben Gurion’s Dream a Reality:

The Negev from Now to 2020


The subject of the Negev was center stage at the 2011 Denver GA in a session which was led by the Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado's chief executive, Doug Seserman and attended by over 200 Negev enthusiasts from around North America and Israel.


Former Colorado Governor, Bill Ritter, David Merage of the Merage Foundation and Shmulik Riffman, Mayor of the Ramat HaNegev Council discussed why so many federations, organizations and individual philanthropists invest their time, effort and financial resources in the Negev.


The session culminated with a celebratory Negev Fair, at which representatives of organizations active in the Negev presented and shared their activities and achievements. Click here to view the activists speaking.
