Farewell to Yefim – the man who built Tzfat

After spending over 20 years with Livnot U’Lehibanot, we wished Yefim Kosouchkin a very happy retirement. He came to Israel from Russia during the Post-Soviet Aliyah, and has been working, building, constructing and fixing things at Livnot since 1994. IMG_4369 Originally a factory engineer managing hundreds of workers in St Petersburg in the Soviet Union, Yefim fixed and repaired not just everything at the Livnot campus, but all around the city of Tzfat. From the parks and gardens, to the artists colony and the cemetries; bomb shelters around the Galilee and tracks and trails in the Golan, Livnot and our incredible chevre have built Tzfat over the years, and Yefim and his toolbox, has had a hand in it all.

120 years of Livnot experience!

We wish him all the best for the future, proving of course, Livnot is Leave-not! IMG_4398
