Dear friends and supporters,
It is a great honour for me to have been elected President of the Canadian Associates of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Manitoba Region.
Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is a miracle. Israel’s fastest-growing university, home to about 20,000 students, continues to produce cutting-edge research and discoveries in the areas of water resource management, juvenile diabetes, nano-technology, cyber-security and much, much more. (Please check out www.bengurion.ca)
Most recently, the newly-inaugurated Advanced Technology Park adjacent to the university is a multidimensional project involving BGU, the Israel Defence Forces’ special technical and computer units and private industry (Deutsche Telekom, Elbit, etc.). This will provide employment and research opportunities to the thousands of IDF soldiers being transferred to the Beer-sheva region.
BGU’s unique Homeland Security Institute is at the forefront of research in the fields of cyber-security, unmanned robotics, satellites and much more. The future will definitely be an exciting one for BGU!
Let’s join together to help fulfill David Ben-Gurion’s vision and continue the great work of BGU through personal and financial support.
I look forward to a wonderful and exciting term!
Sheldon Zamick, President
CABGU Manitoba Region
