Dear Supporters and Friends,
I am thrilled to welcome you all to our new and improved website that will communicate all the exciting things going on at CABGU (Canadian Associates of Ben-Gurion University) and BGU (Ben-Gurion University). I am so proud of the fact that since I joined the CABGU team in July '11, with the support and work of our Boards and professional staff, we have made some very interesting inroads in each of the communities where we have offices. There are also plans to possibly open offices in other key Canadian cities.
I firmly believe that we at CABGU represent Israel's finest and most dynamic university and I truly am convinced of the almost 'holiness' of our mission; to help raise funds to support the cutting edge research being conducted at Ben-Gurion University as well as to provide scholarship money for the thousands of students who need it. Please peruse our site and learn about the fascinating areas of scientific research being conducted at BGU. As Israel's fastest growing university with over 20,000 students presently enrolled, I know that it's just a matter of time until Nobel Prize winners will hail from BGU.
I look forward to some exciting events that will be soon taking place across Canada and I hope that you will join us as we promote Israel's embodiment of David Ben Gurion's dream of developing the Negev Desert. May we all continue to go from 'strength to strength'.
Mark Mendelson MSW
