Negev Settlement Starts Building Home for Premier Ben Gurion

Construction of a home for Premier David Ben Gurion and his family within the settlement of Sdeh Boker in the Negev was begun today.

The four-room house will be constructed of prefabricated wood panels produced in Sweden. His famous library will be housed in a nearby archaeological laboratory. The Sdeh Boker kibbutz met today and officially accepted the Premier as a member so that he could live in the settlement.
