Uriel Liwerant was born and raised in the Gush Etzion community of Efrat. He was drafted into a Hesder unit of the tank corps after completing two years of Torah study at Yeshivat Har Etzion. He was soon promoted to the rank of tank commander. In early morning maneuvers on August 5, 2009, Uriel's tank made its way across a mobile bridge over a deep ditch. Uriel, feeling that the tank was not crossing straight, commanded his crew to brace themselves and to prepare for an overturn. Issuing these orders, he was able to save his soldiers but not himself. Uriel was thrown from the tank and was killed instantly at the age of 21.

In their desire to pay tribute to Uriel's love for the land of Israel and for Gush Etzion in particular, the Liwerant family has joined forces with the Jewish National Fund to support the renovation of the Gush Etzion Heritage and Visitors Center. Located at Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, the Center is a memorial to the heroic defenders and settlers of Gush Etzion during the 1948 War of Independence. The JNF is currently amassing funds for a state of the art museum that will present and exhibit the history of this important era.

Gracing the entrance way to the new museum will be a room dedicated especially in Uriel’s memory. The room will contain cutting edge interactive programs for allowing the visitors to learn and understand the role that the Gush Etzion area has played in the history of our people since time immemorial. Our patriarchs and their families walked these very hills and dales, literally paving the way for generations of our people throughout the millennia of Jewish history. This is the land where Uriel grew up, this is the land where he hiked for hours with his friends, this is the land where he was immersed in studying Jewish law and history, and this is the land where he always dreamed of connecting his nation’s past with his own future. In his name and in his honor, let us enable others like him to live his dream.

I comment each time I like a article on a website or I have something to add to the conversation. Usually it is a result of the sincerness displayed in the post I browsed. And on this post Jewish National Fund. I was moved enough to post a comment :-P I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or do a few of the comments look like written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list the complete urls of your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

But the greens can at least take comfort in knowing the extent of car recycling. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. Everyone who has ever owned a car will understand what a huge relief that would be in terms of car maintenance.

The main reason for this is that many dealerships are anticipating All New models landing throughout the year. The car market down under displays cars that not only differ in their feature but also the price range. Looking for something to do with your old cars that seem useless for you.
