Elisheva's MARVA Ceremony--May 23, 2006
To show their support for the State of Israel,
young people may volunteer for MARVA. Their two and a half months of
rigorous Israeli army training and personal growth is recognized in a moving
ceremony before family and friends. Elisheva's army base was near S'dei
Boker, Ben Gurion's home kibbutz, deep in the Negev Desert. The ceremony
took place at Ben Gurion's grave.
