Some eighty members of a KKL-JNF delegation from France, on a visit to Israel to take part in the traditional Water Walk, attended the inauguration of the Dimona Educational Center for Zionism and Ecology, which was established thanks to donations from Friends of KKL-JNF in France. 


“It’s exciting to meet Israeli schoolchildren and realize that because of our involvement, such a beautiful center has been established here,” said Frederick Nordmann, Honorary President of KKL-JNF France. 
The study center, which is located in the city’s Mifal HaPayis Center, includes games and activities presenting KKL-JNF’s varied projects that benefit both Israel’s population and its environment: forestry, settlement, land development, water facilities, conservation, etc. Zionist and ecological values are conveyed thorough games and activities, with the emphasis on modern technological aids.KKL


The Center was established thanks to a donation presented by David Schildkraut of France in memory of his father, mother, brother and sister, all of whom perished in the Holocaust. As the donor was unable to make the journey from France personally because of advancing age, he sent a video film instead in which he expressed his congratulations on the establishment of the educational center and said how moved he was to have this opportunity to commemorate in such a worthwhile manner his beloved family members who had been murdered by the Nazis.
