Settling the Negev is of national importance! While the Negev possesses immense untapped resources it also poses significant socio-civic challenges to its settlers. Clearly to succeed in this undertaking, one must do it from personal choice and concern and come fortified with love and a firm belief in the potential of the Negev and its inhabitants.
