State Attorney, Shai Nitzan, Visits ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran

Residents of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran were honored to host State Attorney Shai Nitzan and directors of his office at the village.

The visit was very moving and was a closure of sorts for the State Attorney.

20 years ago, Shai Nitzan, then a young attorney, met Yehuda Marmorstein, CEO of ADI, when he was involved in ADI Moriah’s case brought to the Israeli Supreme Court regarding student transportation not subsidized by the municipality.  Nitzan’s mark on that case is still felt today, helping hundreds of families.

After a tour of the village, Mr. Nitzan summarized his visit saying, “A short while ago, we met to establish the goals of the State Attorney’s office. One of the ideas that came up was the advancement of human rights and equality in Israeli society. We have an opportunity to impact this field. I am familiar with and I have seen a lot of places, but ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran is something special and altogether different. I think I am speaking for everyone present when I say that this [visit] was very emotional. Our place, that of the State Attorney, is to work to lessen discrimination, to take care of and assist the periphery in its lack of equality vis-à-vis the center of the country.”
