Religious ecological yishuv Negev Israel

My dream/purpose/mission in life is to create a religious ecological yishuv in the Negev. A place where Torah, ecology, study, theory and practice in daily life meet. Where people live/work with respect for each other and for the environment. Aish.com can participate with their programme 'Aish HaTorah's Eco-Fellowships' but who wants to join me as an inhabitant/worker/participant? By the way there is a possible spot (a half deserted kibbutz) available for this yishuv.

Read the Nach

Great idea n glad it inspired you to grow in Yiddishkeit. Navi is not learned in most yeshivos and pitters out after high school for girls.

Please Consider Your Words

Rabbi Salomon, please do not use the term "settlement." It has such negative conotations today and attacks the legitamacy of the people who live there. Be specific; the place is a village, a Kibbutz, a town or city - not a "settlement."
