Ron Nachman awarded posthumous Israel Prize

The Israel Prize for Lifetime Achievement and Exceptional Contribution to the Nation was awarded posthumously to former Ariel Mayor Ron Nachman, who died January.


The committee noted: "Ron Nachamn considered the settlement and establishment of Israel the highest of values, causing Ariel to be declared a city, Samaria's capital, and serving that city as mayor until he died." In addition, Israeli Music researcher Eliyahu Hacohen also received the lifetime achievement prize. (Shahar Chai)
