The Representative of the Israel Defense Forces Corporal Dan Kourkovsky has been chosen to light a torch at Israel’s 67th Independence Day Ceremony.
The Mifne Center, which treated Dan Kourkovsky during his childhood, is proud of his impressive accomplishments! We congratulate the family on their dedicated work over the years.
Dan Kourkovsky, who was diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum, is one of the first graduates of the “Seeing Far” Program in the Intelligence Wing of the IDF and has performed complex decoding for the operations section, which until his arrival had not been accomplished. His work reflects his excellent decoding capabilities for intelligence gathering in various sectors. Lighting the torch, Dan will be accompanied by First Lieutenant Bat-Hen Pomorchock.
A letter from Dan’s father:
I want to express my appreciation for your work. The path to this accomplishment, and I hope more accomplishments in the future, began in the Mifne Center. A month of therapy at Mifne, 17 years ago, changed his future. Today and for the rest of our lives, and I have emphasized this at every opportunity, we will remember that the first important step towards Dan’s integration and return to family life was done with your help, and with your personal help, Hanna. We never forget about Rosh Pina and visit you every time we are in the area.
Hanna, there are no words to describe how I value your work. I am sure that Dan agrees with every word that I have written.
