According to the plan, Ben-Gurion's "hut" at the kibbutz (communal settlement) of Sde Boker, his tomb and that of his wife Paula, also at Sde Boker, will be renovated. The presentation for visitors at the site will be modernized. This is being done "in order to strengthen awareness of David Ben-Gurion and his vision" the government said in a communiqué.
"All of this," he explained, "is in the spirit of Ben-Gurion's vision. The means may be different, but the goal is the same. I am pleased that all of this joins in with the renovation of the Sde Boker site. Its development is an additional and significant layer in implementing the Government's decision to develop our national heritage."
