JNF Negev Dinner is September 19

The Campaign

This year’s funds raised will be allocated toward the construction of the new Abramovich Building, future home to TAU’s Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Center, a state-of-the-art building on campus galvanize technological research and development at Tel Aviv University.

Made possible through a US$30 million gift, the building will be the dedicated new home of TAU’s Nano Center, established as the first of its kind in Israel in 2000. Today, the Center comprises 90 research teams who have published over 1,700 scientific papers, registered 200 patents and provided advanced services to dozens of industrial affiliates. Once complete, the building is expected to captivate the nanoscience community, reinforce multidisciplinary research and technological innovation, intensify industry collaboration, and create new connections between the scientific world and society at large.

On September 19, 2019, JNF Montreal will close the Campaign at their Annual Negev Gala, this year celebrating its 65th Sapphire Jubilee Anniversary, honouring Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University Immediate Past National President and 2007 Tel Aviv University Honorary Doctorate Recipient, Barbara Seal, C.M.. Barbara is the first woman to be honoured at this event in 22 years – and only the fourth woman in the Gala’s history.

Drawing her inspiration from the Jewish value of “Tikkun Olam”, Barbara hopes to seed future medical breakthroughs by spurring support for the construction of the Abramovich Building for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Tel Aviv University. This revolutionary project is a multimillion-dollar effort to bring Barbara’s vision of improving humanity to fruition.
