Begin Park in Azur

The town of Azur, just south of Tel Aviv, dedicated the central park area in the community in the memory of Menachem Begin on September 5, 2007.

In the presence of the Local Council head, Mrs. Chassia Begin, Yehiel Kadishai, Efrayim Even of the Irgun Veterans' Associations and Israel Drobles of the Begin Center, a large stone was uncovered reading

The Menachem Begin Park

Here's a picture.

Deep appreciation is extended to Advocate Navon Katzav who initiated this project a decade ago and belabored on its behalf until achieveing the authorization of the Local Council.
