Midreshet Sde Boker in the Negev

Campus Midreshet Sde-Boker David Ben-Gurion, the founding father of the State of Israel, considered

the development and settlement of the Negev to have far-reaching consequences. One of his most famous quotes is: “If we do not stand in the Negev- Tel Aviv will not stand.” Yad Ben-Gurion and Midreshet Sde Boker, the successors of his legacy, see great importance in establishing a leadership development center in the spirit and inspiration of David Ben-Gurion’s vision, near the tomb estate. The goal is to educat and to train young people in the Negev to lead the State of Israel and its people, to set challenges and achieve new goals, and to influence humanity in the field of sustainability in the desert, as Ben-Gurion predicted. We want the new center to host leaders and policy makers from Israeli communities and from around the world for meetings and discussions that impact on the environment and society. In order to bring the Negev communities closer to Ben-Gurion’s heritage, the center will also host shows, concerts, plays and films.
