Speaker: Yedidya Harush

21s Century Pioneers: Developing Communities in the Negev

Guest Speaker: Yedidya Harush

Yedidya Harush, JNF-Halutza liaison, was born and raised in the community of Atzmona in Gush Katif. Yedidya’s family relocated to Halutza after Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005. He was recruited to play basketball in New Jersey for the last two years of high school. After graduation, he was offered college scholarships, which he did not accept. Instead, he returned to Israel and joined an elite Paratrooper Brigade.

Located in the northwest Negev on Israel’s borders with Egypt and Gaza, Halutza was founded in 2005 by a small group of families evacuated from the Gush Katif communities of Atzmona and Netzarim during Israel’s disengagement from Gaza. This remote corner of the desert, which had never been inhabited or farmed, is now a rapidly expanding agricultural region, which is attracting new residents from throughout Israel.

Event Co-Chairs: Alyssa Russo and Dan Richter
