Noah Fleiszig’s Barmitzvah
In honour of his bar mitzvah, Noah is seeking support for the development of the JNF Australia Yerucham Heritage Park.
About the Project:
The JNF Australia Yerucham Heritage Park is perched on a 2-acre plot with a breathtaking, panoramic view. It will be a jewel at the entrance to Yerucham.
Surrounding the beautiful Atid Bamidbar Center and the soon-to-be-constructed Yerucham Heritage House museum, the barren plot of desert will become a green campus. The Yerucham Heritage Park will have tree-lined, lighted paths; shaded sitting corners with benches and tables; an amphitheater with seating for 150 people facing the beautiful view, ideal for sunset concerts; outdoor sculptures and installations; 3 open-sided pergolas for group activities; a traditional Moroccan “frenna” oven and campfire site, with tree-shaded spaces for group activities; and a grove of lush trees.
The JNF Australia Grove in the Neveh Ha’emek Neighbourhood, is the site of the original “Ma’abara” (Transit Camp for immigrants) from January 1951. It will become a premier national center for celebrating and documenting the little-known story of the heroic pioneers who settled in the isolated Ma’abara of Yerucham and endured the harsh conditions of the Negev desert.
JNF Australia has a long-standing connection to the Negev – beginning with the liberation of Beersheva in WWI by the Australian Mounted Division’s Light Horse Brigades.
This is a pioneering story that never ends, and you can be part of it!
