Dear friends, supporters, and parents, Please enjoy our June/July newsletter below. Campus life is thriving and although this newsletter is quite long, we have so many stories that we want to share with you, we just had to include all of them. It was with great sadness that we announced the passing of Sam Zell in May. Sam has been a lead supporter of Reichman University for over 20 years. Through the Zell Family Foundation, he led the sponsorship of the Zell Entrepreneurship Center at Reichman University which operated one of the premier programs at our institution. He changed the lives of hundreds of students that participated and was a mentor to so many aspiring entrepreneurs. Sam was a trusted advisor to Prof. Reichman while he was building the University and I know he will be dearly missed. We will always be thankful for his support and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
Please note that as the end of the academic year commences, we are now starting to send out thank you letters from all of the deserving students that receive scholarships because of your many generous donations. Students from all over the world are given the opportunity to study at Reichman University thanks to your support. We hope you enjoy reading their stories and find them as inspirational as we do.
Another reminder that we are leading a mission to Reichman University from September 10-14 and would be thrilled if you would join us. This mission will include a vast array of activities on and off campus in Israel. If you are interested in joining, please let us know here.
Enjoy your summer! Leslie Skyba
