Message from the President

I am both proud and excited to be a part of an organization that in 75 years has raised over $2 billion in total funds. We celebrate 75 years of dedication, generosity and vision made possible by our community.

As a Technion alum, I know firsthand the impact that the university has had in changing lives, gaining knowledge and revolutionizing industries both in Israel and around the world.

ATS Chicago is privileged to have exemplary leaders who are committed to education and the advancement of medicine, science and engineering in Israel. I am humbled to be part of that tradition and am committed to the future success of the organization. Our office hosts Technion leaders, professors and students in an effort to inform people about the Technion’s breakthrough research, its exciting global partnerships and the extraordinary impact the university has on Israel and the world. I invite you to attend these enriching and inspiring events.
