Launch of the Aliyah to Academia Program, October 2022

A lead gift from the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation will support the construction of a dormitory complex on BGU’s Sde Boker campus, benefitting the growing Goldman Sonnenfeldt School of Sustainability and Climate Change and serving a critical need for more housing in the desert.

The Aliyah to Academia – Assistance Fund for Students Affected by the War in Ukraine (in collaboration with A4BGU) received support from: Keren Kayemet LeYisrael (KKL-JNF); the World Jewish Congress, thanks to the assistance of Dr. Yuri Kanner, Vice President of the World Jewish Congress and President of the Russian Jewish Congress; Irina Nevzlin, President of the Nadav Foundation and HaBogrim; Alberto Moskona; and Ilya Lifshits. Thanks to their generosity, we were able to assist numerous new Olim from Russian speaking countries.

The ICL Group honored the late Nitzan Moshe, a beloved ICL executive and engaged BGU alum, by contributing to the Nitzan Moshe Center for Energy and Sustainability and naming an auditorium. The David and Janet Polak Foundation provided a generous grant to establish and name the National Artificial Intelligence Resilience Laboratory. This first of-its-kind, joint BGU/Cyber Bureau R&D lab will focus on strengthening the resilience of artificial intelligence-based models to cybersecurity attacks.
