Letter from Ben-Gurion University (June 2015)

On behalf of American Associates of Ben-Gurion University, thank you to Temple Beth Am, our supporters and our new friends for joining us to hear Professor. Fred Lazin’s presentation on “A Nuclear Iran: “Who is Afraid of the Iranian Bomb”?

We continue to receive positive feedback and we greatly appreciate your interest and enthusiasm to learn more about the University. We are proud to be partnering with Temple Beth Am this year and look forward to our next Greater Florida Region speaking engagement in February.

This year, BGU is celebrating 47 years as the most dynamic university in Israel today and, once again, the number one choice of Israeli undergraduates. The 20,000 young women and men studying at BGU prove once again that Israel’s greatest resource is brainpower. Students participate in groundbreaking areas of study that have practical benefits for the people of Israel and much of the rest of the world, including: ecological conservation, desert studies, alternative energy, water purification, nanotechnology, community medicine, Israel studies, homeland security, and Jewish literature and culture. 

We were so impressed to learn that many of our guests have visited BGU and we encourage you to come again on your next Israel visit.

Once again, thank you for being among so many good friends of Ben-Gurion University who are committed to a strong and prosperous Israel. Please be in touch with us to get involved and to learn more about fulfilling Ben-Gurion’s vision of the future of the Negev.

Have a great summer!



Israeli Ambulance Dedication 2015

In March 2015, the Dalton Family donated an ambulance to Israel's emergency services organization Magen David Adom, in memory of Nate Dalton's late mother, of blessed memory.

Before the ambulance was donated, Temple Beth Am hosted an ambulance dedication and special Shabbat Service honoring the gift.
