Shalom from Americans for Ben-Gurion University in the Northwest! Thank you for your interest in learning more about Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and about upcoming local events and opportunities to meet outstanding BGU faculty members visiting our area.

The involvement of people like you has helped Ben-Gurion University become a leader in fields like medicine, alternative energy, desert agriculture, water purification, nanotechnology, biotechnology, cyber security, and much more. Your generosity fosters continued excellence in higher education, cutting-edge research and community development that benefits the Negev, Israel and the world.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the most meaningful way to connect to BGU. Please contact me – whether you’d like to meet for coffee or receive an invitation to our next event. And if you’re planning a trip to Israel, be sure to let me know so I can arrange a personalized tour for you.

Warm regards,

Judith-Alterman
