(JNS.org) The soon-to-be-built visitor center at the Hula Nature Reserve will be named after Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, in recognition of his ongoing friendship with and support for Israel, when he visits the Jewish state in two weeks, Israel Hayom reported.

The center, established by the Jewish National Fund, will be built from funds collected in Canada at a fundraising event that Harper attended. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to accompany Harper during his visit.
