On Tuesday, August 9, a bicycle trail in memory of KKL France Board Member Alex MoÃ¯se was dedicated in Adulam France Park in the Judean Lowlands.
“Adulam France Park is located in the same geographical region where David fought Goliath, and where Judah the Maccabee rallied his forces to attack the Romans. By choosing to commemorate Alex Moïse at this site, KKL France has added his name to the list of heroes of the Jewish people over history,” said KKL-JNF General Emissary to France Fino Edery, who emceed the ceremony dedicating the Kanim bicycle path
in Adulam France Park to the memory of Alex Moïse.
Alex Moïse was a member of the KKL France
Board of Directors and the Secretary General of the Zionist Federation of France. He devoted his entire life to Israel, the Jewish people, and KKL-JNF. He passed away at the age of 48 and is survived by his wife Julie and their four children.
Michael Adari, KKL-JNF Emissary to the South of France, was Alex’s close friend. “He was like a little brother to me,” Michael said. “Besides being a board member of KKL France, he held many other positions in the French Jewish community, in addition to serving as the Secretary General of the Zionist Federation. When Iran arrested three Jews on trumped-up charges of espionage, Alex organized demonstrations that were instrumental in leading to their eventual release. His courage in dealing with the illness that he eventually succumbed to reflected the courage that informed his entire life. Before he died, he asked to be remembered in nature, in Israel. ‘KKL-JNF could do something’, he said. As soon as he passed away, we began working on an appropriate way of commemorating his memory. He was a person who was all heart, and he will live forever in Israel’s heart.”
The Kanim Trail is located in Adulam-France Park
, a very unique area of Israel that is endowed with a wealth of ecological, natural, agricultural and historical treasures, all of which, together with its beautiful landscapes, make it attractive to tourists. It is the last high-quality uninterrupted open area remaining in central Israel. Thanks to KKL-JNF’s strenuous efforts and the generous support of friends of KKL France, the park is well developed and well cared for.
