    1. Contribution to the Community
      After managing the Academic Studies of the Tel-Hai Regional College for four and a half years (studies of the University of Haifa, the Faculty of Agriculture of The Hebrew University in Rechovot, and the Open University), and the academic supervision of the preparatory studies for the Matriculation exams, I returned to a managing position in the newly founded Tel-Hai Academic College, at the beginning process of becoming an independent institute for higher education. In the role of coordinator of the developing departments within the Humanities and Social Sciences, I supervised the process of receiving the permission, and then the ordination of four departments (Social Work, Education, Economics and Management, General B.A. Studies) to grant the B.A. degree. I founded the 'School for Humanities and Social Sciences' in the college, and functioned as head of School until July 1999.
      During my more than twenty five years in Tel-Hai, I participated in numerous committees, working teams, projects and more of the same. Naturally only some of them could be added to the lists above. I have given many lectures in various publics in the region, such as the 'Golden Age House' in Tel-Hai.
      Other contributions: Activity and involvement in various regional matters, as a member of some of the regional committees and working groups in the Upper Galilee Regional Council, in Rosh Pinna (my resident village), mainly connected with preservation and restoration, and heading the Foreign-Relations Committee.
      I am also active as COB of both ICSPC in Kiryat Shemona and (until 1/2012) the Institute of Art Studies at the Tel-Hai College.
