RKYHS Students Learn About Making the Desert Bloom

RKYHS students heard from Yedidya Harush, the representative for the Negev’s Halutza region, who is playing a key role in developing the area into a thriving community. Harush illustrated for students how the residents, working with the Jewish National Fund’s Blueprint Negev campaign, are developing the Negev desert and increasing its population.
