Amuta Ve’Alitem Ba’Negev

Based in the Negev desert town of Mitzpe Ramon, Ve’Alitem Ba’Negev is a non-profit organization (Amuta) that focuses on education, welfare and the settlement of the Negev in general, and the socio-cultural-spiritual advancement of the citizens of Mitzpe Ramon in particular. The organization is affiliated with a fast expanding nucleus of roughly a hundred Torah oriented families who have moved to Mitzpe Ramon from various parts of Israel to offer hands-on assistance in this endeavor. Mitzpe Ramon was founded in the mid-1950’s as a base camp for the laborers building the road from Beer-Sheva to Eilat. Over the years, Mitzpe Ramon has been populated predominantly by various waves of government-placed olim xadashim (new immigrants) mainly from North Africa and the former Soviet Union. As such and at 90 kilometers from the nearest city (Beer-Sheva) the town has a complicated history of chronic socio-economic stagnation.
