Desert Bloom

W

hile Israel is experi-
encing some of her
darkest moments, it'
seems fitting to highlight some
shining advancements in the
Jewish state. Many of them are
happening on Israeli college
campuses, including those
with strong ties to Detroit,
such as Bar-Ilan University
near Tel Aviv and Technion-
Israel Institute of Technology
Sharon Luckerman
in Haifa.
But there's a growing revolu-
tion going on in the Negev
desert, home_to Ben-Gurion University in Beersheva.
There, visionary President Avishay Braverman is
renewing David Ben-Gurion's dream to make the
desert bloom — only Braverman is relying on educa-
tion, technology and chutzpah.
Last February, Staff Writer Sharon Luckerman had
the chance to meet Braverman in Detroit. That
meeting led to this profile of one of Israel's new
visionaries.
