Message from the President

Relative to many of my fellow ATS D.C. Region members, I’m still a newcomer to the Technion and ATS family. But with my background in Jewish communal activity and a career as legal counsel to technology-oriented companies, the Technion is, for me, irresistible. The opportunity to contribute toward scientific advancement with global impact — while also strengthening Israel — keeps me energized.

Our Washington, D.C. office has much to be proud of. In addition to our long track record of support for Technion’s financial health, our Region has led numerous promotional efforts. We’ve pioneered a scholarship program for local high school participants in the Technion’s summer SciTech Program that has helped spread the university’s good name well beyond our traditional communities. We’ve built on the Technion Ambassadors Program to expand opportunities for community outreach and engagement. Through networking, we have helped boost the visibility of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, taking shape 200 miles to our north.

With accomplishments also come challenges. The ATS National Board recently adopted a new Strategic Plan that is expansive in every way, including an ambitious ten-year campaign agenda. I am confident that our D.C. office has the creativity, energy and commitment necessary to meet the challenges. I look forward to working with you all in honing our own strategic direction and optimizing support for the national vision. Please join me, as together we ensure continued success for the ATS and the Technion.

Become a Leader
