Major General Doron Almog, MA, MBA, Research Fellow Harvard University and Washington Institute – Founder of ALEH Israel Organization
When his son Eran was born with extreme autism, Maj. Gen. Almog began what would become his life’s mission: the establishment of the ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran rehabilitative village in 2005 named for his son who passed away shortly after its inception. Maj. Gen. Almog has since served as Chairman of the village. His contribution to security and society has been acknowledged with a number of awards including The Israel Prize for lifetime achievement in and special contribution to the society of Israel and the Yigal Alon Award for Exemplary Pioneering Social Activities presented to Aleh Negev.
Throughout his life, Maj. Gen. Almog has dedicated himself to his beloved country Israel. He fulfilled most of his army service both as a soldier and in leadership capacities in elite IDF units: Commander during the Yom Kippur War; Command of the first task force to land in Entebbe airport during the 1976 rescue operation; and Command of many clandestine missions to bring 6000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. Since his retirement from the IDF he has chaired the Hoopoe Foundation to protect nature in Israel, named Chief of staff for the economic development of the Bedouin Sector in the Negev and founded the Athlone Global Security investment fund specializing in high-tech start-ups
In Support of ALEH
Israel’s Largest Network of Care for Children with Severe Multiple Disabilities
The JNF Ottawa Negev Dinner has a proud history of raising funds for humanitarian and environmental causes. Mr. Greenspon has chosen to support the ALEH Organization in Israel. Founded in 1982 by parents who were seeking the best care and opportunities for a child with severe autism, ALEH believes that all individuals, regardless of the severity of their physical or cognitive disabilities, have the right to benefit from the best available care to reach their full potential. Today, ALEH provides care for 700 children of all faiths – Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Druze – in state-of-the art therapeutic facilities in Israel. Without ALEH, many of these children would be forced to spend their lives in hospitals, with no opportunities for rehabilitation, education, social interaction and the love and warmth of a home.
