If your spirit responds to desert peace and beauty, a sense of freedom and a chance to leave your mark on Israel’s greatest frontier, then the Negev is the place for you. It’s a region of exciting contrasts, where road signs warn drivers to watch out for camels crossing and fields of mirrors harvesting solar energy rotate with the sun. The parched landscape yields silver-green salt bushes, where after winter rains, rare and wild red tulips dot the sandy hills.

Salty water is an agricultural advantage in the Negev, not a setback. The population is sparse, but community spirit is strong.
