March 2022 Newsletter

Dear Friends, Supporters, Parents, and Alumni, Please enjoy our March Newsletter. Most importantly, I would like to thank many of our American Friends of IDC Board members and supporters for contributing to the emergency Ukrainian scholarship campaign. We are very proud that so many stepped up to the plate to allow us to assist our current Ukrainian students as well as enable us to accept transfer and new students to Reichman University. Welcoming these young people to the Reichman University (RU) family is part of our Zionist mission and embodies the philosophy that our University was founded on. We were thrilled to be able to host a US Alumni Family Purim Party here in New York City. It was great to see all of the smiling faces of new and old friends and celebrate the Purim holiday all together. We were eager to come together after so long and it was much needed to regather and connect. Please see pictures below. If you are heading to Israel for Pesach, be sure to stop by campus. There is so much to see and we would love to host you for a tour. Our office would be happy to assist you in coordinating a visit should your schedule permit. Warmest Wishes and wishing you all a Happy Spring!

As the conflict intensifies, the Israeli government is anticipating the arrival of thousands of new immigrants to Israel. We have launched an emergency scholarship campaign for Ukrainian refugees who come to study at Reichman University. Please join us in bringing Ukrainian students to live and study in Israel. There are currently 14 students from Ukraine at Reichman University (IDC Herzliya)'s Raphael Recanati International School. Though safe in Israel, their thoughts and prayers are naturally with their families and friends back home. We also have two RRIS students, stuck in the Ukraine, whom we spoke to while in shelters a few days ago, and they are now on their way out in the Western Ukraine. With the outbreak of the conflict, we established a remote psychological support system, including daily contact and attempts to transfer the two young women to a safe place. We will continue to do everything possible to help the students and their families during this period of physical and emotional hardship. We have launched an emergency scholarship campaign for Ukrainian students whose families are now needy. Jonathan Davis has been receiving direct requests for financial assistance from new applicants and from students who have been impacted by the conflict, and is committing Reichman University to help in any way possible. We greatly appreciate anything you can do to assist us in our mission.

Full scholarship- $15,000 Half scholarship- $7,500 Double Chai Scholarship- $3,600 Chai- $1800

Any other generous gift will help us help students from this war region immediately.
