JERUSALEM (Oct. 6)
The Jewish Nation al Fund is preparing the infrastructure for four new settlements to be established shortly in the Arava region of the Negev, Moshe Rivlin, chairman of the JNF informed the directorate recently.
Rivlin said that despite the fact that this work was carried out in addition to work in existing settlements, the JNF had several other plans. Among them are the creation of a large-scale water reservoir, large-scale planting of trees inside the settlements and around them, and creating a new camping ground in addition to the one that was dedicated in the Arava during Succoth. Rivlin said it was the JNF’s task to develop the Arava intensively and efficiently.
