On Tuesday, October 8th, 2013, Interior Minister and Knesset Member Gideon Saar, visited Ramat Hanegev.
During their executive meeting, council Mayor Shmulik Rifman presented the key issues and challenges on the agenda of Ramat Hanegev: advancement and development of existing communities in the region, augmenting the region’s population by establishing new communities, the Council’s involvement in national social projects, regulating the Bedouin communities, the inquiry commissions concerning borders and livelihood and challenges posed by the management of the open uninhabited lands.
The peak of the visit was when the minister, accompanied by his father, Dr. Samuel Serchansky, toured Ben-Gurion’s House in Kibbutz Sde Boker. Dr. Serchansky had been David Ben-Gurion’s personal physician!
The honored guests also chatted with kibbutz members and met an old friend who had been [someone’s] teacher and educator in Sde Boker.
