IDF Major General ditches Army career to build home for the disabled

Doron Almog is the father of a Eran, who was born with severe autism. As head of the IDF’s Southern Command, Doron foiled many attempts to launch terror attacks in Israel. He also took part in the 1976 Entebbe operation and the airlift of some 6,000 Jews from Ethiopia in the 1980s.

About ten years ago, Doron left the army to found Aleh Negev, a rehabilitative village located in Ofakim in southern Israel, that provides severely disabled young adults the opportunity to live a rich and productive life within a safe environment. The village is the largest of the ALEH network of residential facilities for children with severe disabilities. After Eran’s death in 2007 at age 23, Aleh Negev’s name was changed to Nachalat Eran.
