Recently, the ASL Fellows of the Raphael Recanati International School and Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy, and Strategy had the opportunity to meet with their peers serving in the IDF reserves, Jonathan DavisReichman University friend and philanthropist, Prof. Bernie Munk. Prof. Munk recounted his time abroad and his solemn experiences during 9/11, engaging in a historical discussion about the overseas involvement of the US. The group discussed the life impacts on young adults of being in the military as well as in a combat environment. Reservist Ari Lewin in particular talked about the need for calmness and how an intense focus on the situation at hand in a combat zone cannot be taught in a classroom and how that skill can be readily applied to future aspects of one's life.

As Jonathan Davis was giving his closing remarks about Israel's need for regional security, a rocket siren went off and the group safely exited to the bomb shelter as seen in the picture. Following the official meeting, the ASL fellows continued talking to the IDF reservists about their personal experiences in the war following the harrowing events of October 7th. This was an exemplary opportunity for the ASL fellows to interact with and learn more about their counterparts in the IDF as well as a chance to reflect on what it truly means to be a soldier in both the IDF and US military.

We are thrilled to announce the opening of the Daniel Jusidman Conference Center on campus, one of the most stunning architectural gems in the Israeli academy.

The Daniel Jusidman Conference Center will be the venue for Reichman University’s flagship conferences and will serve as a meeting place for students, lecturers, industry professionals, and the entire university community. The center was designed to foster an inspiring environment.

Located at the heart of the campus, the conference center features a unique auditorium with a 500-seat for performances and ceremonies. The architecture of the Daniel Jusidman Conference Center reflects the spirit of innovation that is at the core of Reichman University’s worldview.

From remarks by Prof. Uriel Reichman, the university’s founding president and chairman of the board, at the center’s launch:

“As a young man, Daniel Jusidman came from Mexico to study in Israel, and perhaps he would have stayed had he not been called upon to return to Mexico to take care of his family after his father’s passing.

Nevertheless, he remained a Zionist throughout his life. It is Zionism that motivated me to establish this university — a university that upholds the original Zionist vision and operates according to the principles of Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

We are profoundly grateful to Daniel Jusidman for his significant contributions to the development of our country and to the advancement of Israeli society in numerous aspects, for his visionary efforts and leadership, and for his dedication and continued support for Reichman University.”
