Message from the President
The Technion is achieving well-deserved global recognition for the excellence of its faculty, the quality of its diverse student body, and the cutting-edge technologies that its world-class research has fostered. From its multiple campuses around the world, spanning from Israel to New York to China, the Technion is not only developing technologies that protect and defend Israel, but its medical,
scientific, and technological research has also led to numerous scientific breakthroughs that have and will continue to benefit all humankind.
These benefits transcend religions, generations, geographies, and ethnicities, thus the global village is a better place because of the Technion. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the American Technion Society – New England at this very exciting time. In New England, we are fortunate to have an active and meaningful base of alumni and donors who care deeply about the Technion and who have been very generous with their time and resources to help ensure the quality of education at the Technion, now and for future generations. I invite all to attend our interesting and exciting events, and to join us in helping to support the Technion and the extraordinary impact it has on us all.
Technion physicists led by President Uri Sivan and Distinguished Professor Moti Segev conducted an experiment to see how light behaves around curves. They froze a soap bubble so that it wouldn’t explode. Then they shined a light through the bubble. The scientists got their answer — as well as an unexpected breakthrough, featured on the July 2, 2020 cover of Nature.
The Technion is contributing to Israel and the global good in unprecedented ways, and it depends on people like you to ensure its continued advancement as a world-class institution of higher education.
The Technion Fund will help ensure that our supporters have access to a broad array of opportunities for engagement at all levels. The Fund will support the entire ecosystem necessary to maintain the Technion’s distinctive strengths.
