"A Desert Frontier: Challenges of Development in the Arava"

A Dynamic Conversation with


Tania Pons Allon

Tania Pons Allon was born in Kibbutz Ketura, worked in Tel Aviv as a designer, and then moved to the Central Arava with her husband and their child. Her husband Yoav Allon, a second-generation farmer from Moshav Hatzeva, was once a financial analyst for a water company, but is now a full-time farmer in the Arava desert. Tania works in the resource development department of the Central Arava Regional Council, a part of Jewish National Fund’s Blueprint Negev campaign to make the region habitable for the next generation of Israelis. Her work directly impacts her community and influences not only her future, but the future of her children.
