ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran

The Jewel of the Negev

The ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village (formerly ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran) was named in memory of Eran Almog, the late son of Didi and Major General (Res.) Doron Almog.  Fueled by his love for Eran, who was born with severe autism and intellectual disabilities, Doron Almog guided the creation of an expansive residential and rehabilitative complex in Israel’s south that has become a home and family for more than 150 children and young adults with severe disabilities and complex medical conditions, and provides a host of rehabilitative solutions for individuals from all backgrounds and levels of need. 

ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran provides a wide range of services, including residential care for people with multiple disabilities and complex medical conditions, an intensive care hospital wing for babies and adults, a para-medical center, hydrotherapy pool, special education school, green care farm, and a therapeutic horse stable and petting zoo.

As chairman of ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, Doron Almog continues to lead and guide the village’s progress and advancement.  As one of the founders of this unparalleled rehabilitative village and a recipient of the 2016 Israel Prize for lifetime achievement and contributions to society and the state, Doron stands as a symbol of disability care and inclusion who advances a crucial social message: “The strength of the human chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”

In this vein, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran welcomes visitors and volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life on a regular basis, including high-school students, IDF soldiers, white collar inmates participating in rehabilitation programs, high-tech company employees, Israeli security service personnel, retired senior citizens, and National Service and international volunteers.

ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran, which was declared a National Project, falls under the jurisdiction of the Merhavim Regional Council and is supported by seven government ministries, JNF-USA and generous supporters around the world.

This truly unique village provides state-of-the-art services that were previously nonexistent in southern Israel, including outpatient and long-term rehabilitation for people in need of intense in-patient rehabilitation or post-hospitalization rehabilitation to facilitate an accelerated and complete return to independent living. ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran provides thousands of rehabilitation treatments to people from surrounding communities each month.

At the same time, ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran is undergoing radical growth to meet the country’s rehabilitative needs.  Slated for completion in 2021, the ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitative Hospital, the first rehabilitative hospital in the Negev region, will feature 108 rehabilitative hospital beds and Israel’s first translational research institute, increasing the number of Israel’s rehabilitative hospital beds dramatically, bringing quality care to the residents of the south, creating more housing and jobs in the Negev, and laying the groundwork for the establishment of fully inclusive communities across the country.
