The new leadership of the Disabled Veterans Organization (ZDVO) has begun it work.
The National Conference of the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization unanimously chose Adv. Edan Kleiman as the Chairman of the organization.
45 yr. old Kleiman, a former Givati Brigade combat soldier, was wounded during a military operation in Khan Yunis from a bullet that penetrated his chest leaving him wheelchair bound.
Since 2004, the incoming Chairman has served in various positions in the organization: Director of the Legal Division, Deputy Chairman of the Tel Aviv District and for the last five years as Chairman of the Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Central District. He will be replacing Haim Bar who held the position for the past decade.
The ZDVO’s new leadership will include Rafi Cohen Tzemach elected the post of Acting Chairman of the organization. Chairman of the Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Central District will be Kobi Yitzhak, and Chairman of the Haifa and Northern District will be Itai Elimelech. Chairman of the Jerusalem District is Dr. Alon Dahan, Dekel Nahshon is Chairman of the Coastal District and the Be’er Sheva and Southern District will be headed by Shim’on Malul. Shimon Navon will serve as Chairman of both the National Committee and National Conference.
“I am proud to be the chairman of an organization of people who gave their bodies and souls to preserve the homeland and protect its existence. This is the organization which has amongst its members the highest number of recipients of decorations for valor and distinction, people who have done so much for the country. They are IDF soldiers for life”, said Kleiman who was visibly moved. “My friends and I will work together, united and determined, in the face of the many important tasks that lay ahead”.
