Darom Adom - The Red South

12:00PM - 1:15PM  


Contact Dan Rozett

Join us live, with Yael Tzafrir, our community's Shlicha (Israel emissary), for a discussion with a resident of Southern Israel living near the Gaza border. They will discuss the double meaning of the Red South - the blooming desert (with red flowers) and the terror balloons igniting agricultural fields turning them a different red.

Darom Adom is an annual Israeli festival, held usually from mid-January until the end of February, during the Anemone (kalaniyot) flower's blossoming season in the northern Negev region of Israel. However, for several years, Hamas has launched thousands of incendiary kites and balloons from Gaza into this region, burning thousands of acres of agricultural land with a huge cost to Israel farmers and to the entire eco-system.
