I am always fascinated when seeing the Nesher factory from afar.
At night it is lit up like a big city.
"The company's flagship plant in Ramle near Tel Aviv is one of the world's largest and leading factories in terms of production capacity, advanced production technology and preserving the environment," their website says.
"During 80 years the company has produced 125 million tons of cement,
which among other things, has been used in the construction of 4 million homes."
Nesher has three factories in Israel.
"Nesher supplies most of the cement needs of Israel and the Palestinian Authority and also exports cement and clinker."
Clinker? Who every heard of clinker? Not me.
For ABC Wednesday, T is for tons and tons of cement.
And I just clicked on Nesher's Hebrew website and found they offer tours for families and groups during Chanuka vacation!
