IsraelCast Episode 83
This week on IsraelCast, we travel to the Central Arava and visit with Hanni Arnon, the Executive Director at the Arava Institute Center for Agricultural Training (AICAT). Hanni discusses agriculture in the middle of the desert and the country-wide impact AICAT students have had during COVID‑19.
Hanni Arnon is the Executive Director at the Arava Institute Center for Agricultural Training (AICAT). Hanni was born and raised in Jerusalem and always saw herself as an educator. In 1981, Hanni moved with her husband, Moti, an agronomist, to Moshav Idan, the newest agricultural community in the Central Arava. Having established a successful farm, Hanni evolved as one of Idan’s leaders, focusing mainly on promoting education, culture and welfare. In 1994, Hanni established AICAT, making use of her agricultural and educational experience. As an educator, Hanni believes that education provides people with the tools to change one's life as well as serve as a bridge between different people from different backgrounds, religions and nationalities.
