The Tikkun Olam committee presents Avnet Kleiner, the director of development for Aleh Negev-Nahalat Eran; this pioneering rehabilitation village in Israel’s Negev provides severely disabled children and adults with a comprehensive framework for life. Kleiner will shed light on new initiatives to broaden inclusion and accessibility in society using examples being implemented in Israel. There is no charge to attend.
At Aleh Negev-Nahalat Eran, Kleiner works closely with its chairman, IDF Major General (res) Doron Almog, to spread Almog’s message of the opportunity the village presents for creating a better society for the disabled and the wider community. He is also the founder of two non-profits, ALFA, to advance the rights of Israeli Holocaust survivors; and WhatIsrael, which promotes constructive conversations about Israel on university campuses worldwide.
