Cornerstone: Remembering Ron Nachman


On January 27, 2015, the City of Ariel and the Nachman Family will remember Mayor Ron Nachman and celebrate his life.

Ron’s wife, Dorith, and Ariel’s Mayor, Eliyahu Shaviro, respectfully invite you to join us for the Ron Nachman Memorial Site and Pioneers Museum cornerstone laying ceremony, to be held on the second anniversary of Ron’s passing; January 27, 2015 – the seventh day of the Hebrew month of Shvat, year 5775.

The Ron Nachman Memorial Site will serve as the gateway to the Ariel National Center for Leadership Development. Its primary structure, the Pioneers Museum, will celebrate the triumphs of Ron and his peers who joined him in establishing Ariel – the City of Samaria. Tens of thousands of visitors and leadership training program participants will learn from Ron’s tangible legacy as they gaze upon the City of Ariel from above, and engage with an exhibition featuring his life story from up close.

As always, we invite you to step into our story as we embark on this important project.

As we build the Ron Nachman Pioneers Museum, we intend to develop a biographical tribute book and website to honor Ron Nachman’s legacy. You can help us. Please send us your written memoirs, pictures or personal video tributes. Feel free to address any or all of the following questions:

What are your most fond memories of Ron?

How did his life touch yours?

How did he inspire you?

Please send your thoughts, memories, tributes and sentiments about Ron to info@friendsofariel.org as we begin compiling this historic work.


The Ron Nachman Memorial Site and Pioneers Museum is a long term project, promising to inspire generations of visitors. We have been blessed with a generous donation to construct the site, yet much effort remains to develop the site’s content. Please use the form below to contribute to the Ron Nachman Memorial Fund. And thank you, in advance, for partnering with us.
