Greetings from Our Chairman


With 2010 nearing its end, this is a wonderful moment to express my thanks for your support of Tel Aviv University this year.

Simply put, your generosity has propelled TAU to its position as Israel's leading research university. You make the difference.

So I want to urge you to make one more gift this year — a gift to support the kind of extraordinary TAU research that's featured here.

Make a contribution by December 31st and you'll save on your 2010 taxes as well.

And you'll have not only my appreciation, but that of some of Israel's finest scientists, scholars and students.
