Uri Goren - On Both Sides of the Crypto

אורי גורן - משני צדי הקריפטו

When asked about his occupation, Uri often presented himself as a farmer. This linkage to the soil is not merely an occupation rather, it is a way of life. Throughout the years, Uri has answered the “call of duty” and made himself available to the cause: the illegal immigration operation, State security, industry, as was needed. But the house in Nachlat Yehuda, close to the citrus grove, (that has since been re-planted with Avocado) – was always and still is – the base: here is where he was born, here is where he came back to.

This modest person invites us – the readers – to share his stories, out of a sense of responsibility, to make sure the younger generation is familiar with the history of our young State.

Uri passed away in July 2017 at his home.
