An Evening with Major General Doron Almog

Israeli Military Hero & Champion of People with Special Needs

Israeli Major General Doron Almog hunted the Munich Olympic terrorists, was the first soldier to land at the daring rescue mission in Entebbe, brought thousands of Ethiopian Jews to Israel and headed the IDF’s Southern Command to protect Israel’s border from infiltration by Gaza terrorists.

But nothing in his storied military career could prepare Almog for the birth of his severely impaired son, Eran. Determined to provide his son with a dignified life, Almog began a 35-year journey that led him to serve as Founder and Chairman of ALEH Negev – Nahalat Eran, the world-renowned rehabilitation village offering unparalleled care for Israelis of all ethnic and religious backgrounds suffering with severe physical and cognitive disabilities.

Through his inspired leadership and fierce advocacy, Almog led a revolution in caring for Israel’s special needs population that brought about a crucial change in societal perception of the Jewish state’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged members.

For his remarkable service to the people of Israel, in 2016 Almog was awarded the “Israel Prize for Lifetime Achievement & Special Contribution to Society & the State.”

Rabbis Janet and Shelly Marder, who visited ALEH Negev earlier this year, invite you to join them for this special evening.
