Dear [[?xx::x[[S1:user_name]]x::Friend::[[S1:first_name]]!]]

Less than a year after we opened the secure Indoor Recreation Center in Sderot, hundreds of children and teens enjoy it daily. Now it’s been featured on a CNN news report.

The work we do for the people and land of Israel, like in Sderot, touches countless lives each and every day. The rec center is open but our work is not done. The center is open but our work is not done. Funds are still needed for ongoing programming, maintenance, and camping activities. Help us continue to put a smile on these kids’ faces and relief in their parents’ hearts.

Blueprint Negev Accomplishments
Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that the government has allocated $37.5 million over the next seven years to the development of the Be'er Sheva River Park. This money has been labeled as a budgetary priority., When touring the River Park, President Shimon Peres told the people of Israel that they should move to Be’er Sheva now, before the prices get too high, “because in a few years this neighborhood is going to more valuable than Tel Aviv.” Blueprint Negev is really happening!
