Technion: My Story

It was the late 1990s and I was at my first American Technion Society (ATS) event at the home of Steve Grand, who has since passed away. Steve told us how long the Technion had been pumping graduates into Israel. How they built the country from scratch — the national water carrier, the electrical grid, and the drip irrigation that turned the arid land green. As he was talking, this image popped into my mind. Though I’d never been to the Technion, I could see the graduates walking out of its gates, dispersing, and starting to build the country. It was like a lightning bolt. I understood how crucial this one school was to the development of Israel.”
