Breaking Ground in Carmit

The JNF Rabbinic Solidarity Mission visits the area of the new community of Carmit. Participants conducted a ceremonial groundbreaking and learned about this planned community for a mix of English speakers primairly from North American olim and current residents of Israel who will relocate to the Negev. Carmit is one of a number of new communities being built with many partners including Jewish National Fund and the Or Movement, among others. JNF's Blueprint Negev master plan is a driving force for Negev development with a goal of bringing 250,000 new residents to the southern part of Israel in the next decade.
