Activities

Tourists and visitors from Israel and all over the world are invited to get acquainted with the heritage of David Ben-Gurion: his pioneering Zionist actions, his leadership, and his unique vision of the Negev.  Together we will examine the relevance of this legacy to the personal lives of the participants through lectures, tours, workshops and seminars in English or Hebrew. For groups that are interested, we also offer two-day workshops with the possibility of arranging accommodation and meals.

The Ben-Gurion Desert Home experience

The home of the first Prime Minister of the State of Israel and his wife Paula in Kibbutz Sde Boker

The Desert Home epitomizes the essence of David Ben-Gurion, the person, without filters.  You are invited to become acquainted with the man and the leader.

The site includes exhibition areas that encompass the Desert Home and are aimed at enriching knowledge and the experience of the visit to the Home of Ben-Gurion: an exhibition on Ben-Gurion’s special connection with Kibbutz Sde Boker, an exhibition about Ben-Gurion’s connection with “the people” he has led, a movie about Ben-Gurion’s leadership, and an interactive display of several issues that were close to Ben-Gurion’s heart and are still relevant to today’s society.

The People's Trial

Ben-Gurion arrives at court to voice his viewpoint in five burning historical events that still effect the state of Israel today: The Declaration of the State of Israel, the Altalena affair, Population Dispersion (the creation of the development towns in Israel’s periphery), State-religion ties the “Status Quo” agreement and Israel- Diaspora relations.

The public is invited to serve as jury members in this imaginary court: get to know both sides of each event, develop a complicated view of the figures, and at the end –vote and make a difference. Join us in court!
