Speaker: Major General (Res.) Doron Almog

Major General Doron Almog served in the IDF from 1969-2004. He led the first paratrooper force to land in Entebbe, Uganda, in the now famous 1976 Rescue Operation, capturing the airfield's control tower and marking the runway for incoming Israeli planes. In 1984, he led the airlift of more than 6,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel in Operation Moses, and from 2001 to 2004, headed Israel's Southern Command. He was considered for IDF Chief of Staff, but chose instead to focus on Aleh Negev-Nahalat Eran, a partnership with the Jewish National Fund to build a village in Israel's Negev desert for the country's most severe special needs population, in honor of his son Eran, the village's first resident, who died in 2007 and for whom the village is now dedicated.  General Almog said he learned from his son that society is measured by how it treats its most vulnerable members.  The village has quickly become a model for the world of human potential and dignity.
