Harry Triguboff, Australia’s sixth wealthiest man, and his wife Rhonda traveled from their home in Sydney to Raanana, Israel to dedicate a meeting place for lone IDF soldiers, as reported by Jwire.

The green area with a lawn, elegant landscaping and a wooden deck is a place where soldiers from overseas who are serving in the IDF to meet and connect. Harry Triguboff, according to Jwire, said at the dedication, “Maybe you were alone in the past, but now you have a family here. It’s important that there are organizations making sure the soldiers who emigrate to Israel feel welcome, like an integral part of Israel.”

Every year 400 young people come to Israel through the Israel Scouts Garin Tzabar program from all over the world, and the majority enlist in combat units. A large number make aliyah after their service and many have family join them in Israel. Triguboff is also patron of the KKL-JNF which engages in projects connected with forestation, agricultural research and water resource development. Zeev Kedem, a representative from the organization, spoke at the ceremony.

Triguboff said at the conclusion of the dedication, “When people say I do a lot for Israel, I think of all that Israel has done for the Jewish people of the world. We have to continue working together to make Israel a better and greater place, and that’s what we are going to do.”
