Dimona is an Israeli city in the Negev desert, 36 kilometers to the south of Beer-Sheva and 35 kilometers west of the Dead Sea in the Southern District of Israel.
Dimona was one among several "development towns" that were created in the 1950s at the initiative of David Ben-Gurion. Dimona itself was conceived in 1953, and settled in 1955, mostly by new immigrants from Northern Africa, who also constructed the city's houses. When the Israeli nuclear program started later that decade, a location not so far from the city was chosen due to its relative isolation in the desert and availability of housing.
In spite of a gradual decrease during the 1980s, the city's population began to grow once again with the beginning of the Russian immigration in the 1990s. Currently, Dimona is the third largest city in the Negev, with the population of 31,200 (1995 estimate). About a third of the city's population works in industrial workplaces (chemical plants at the Dead Sea, high-tech companies and textile shops), and another third in the area of services. Due to the introduction of new technologies, many workmen have found themselves fired in the recent years, creating a total unemployment rate of about 10%.
Dimona is the center of the Black Hebrews, a small religious community that lives according to their own special rules.
