Greetings from Our Chairman


More than ever, I'm impressed with the creativity of TAU's American Friends.

To continue supporting the university in this challenging period, a number of friends have ventured outside the box to find new ways to help. Gifts of stock. Real estate. Fine art. International securities.

And many have made sure to include Tel Aviv University in their wills.

I've followed their lead, and hope that you will too. Make a bequest to help sustain, in the future, the remarkable work you support so generously right now.

It's such a meaningful legacy -- an expression of your convictions and your faith in the future. And it provides a fine model for your loved ones, evoking the values that shape your life and philanthropy.
