  • Dear Friends,

  •  
    ​As we approach our 65th anniversary, Israel has many good reasons to be proud. Our universities are certainly one of those many good reasons. Among all Israeli universities, there is one whose history and vision are intertwined with the vision and the history of the State.

    ​Ben-Gurion University in the Negev was established as a result of the vision of our first Prime Minister. David Ben-Gurion saw the Negev desert as a blooming place. Since its establishment, the University has faced many challenges, yet still manages to maintain very high academic standards.

    Last month, the President of Ben-Gurion University, Professor Rivka Carmi, and her senior staff signed two strategic agreements with the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago. The one signed with the University of Chicago deals with new water production and purification technologies. You can read more about this agreement in our weekly newsletter.

    ​All this is being said and done while another activity is taking place in a small number of universities in the USA where radical elements are trying to smear the name of Israel. Well, maybe this is the right answer after all – while one party is engaged in a smear campaign the other is in building and developing.

    Shabbat Shalom,
