More than 75 TAU alumni and friends gathered for an inspiring panel discussion on career success from three noted Tel Aviv University alumni, held at the home of The Hon. Ido Aharoni, the Consul General of Israel in New York and himself one of the noted Tel Aviv University alumni.

Following an introduction from event co-chair Dr. Ilanit Aminow, member of the New York Alumni Leadership Committee and graduate of the Sackler School of Medicine American Program, Consul Aharoni was joined by fellow TAU alumni Nomi Ghez, the co-founding partner of the Circle Financial Group, and Giora Bar-Dea, the chief executive officer of Strauss–North America. They provided generous and insightful advice to the younger guests and described the role that Tel Aviv University itself played in their success. The lecture was followed by a dynamic Q&A session, and guests enjoyed the wine, food and personal generosity provided by Consul Aharoni.

In closing, event co-chair Ehud Barak, a fellow member of the NY Alumni Leadership Committee, announced the launch of the New York Alumni 2011 Scholarship Campaign, which seeks to provide scholarships for four deserving TAU undergraduates during the 2011-2012 academic year.
