June News and Updates from AFRU

Dear Friends, Supporters, Parents, and Alumni,

Please enjoy our June newsletter below.

It is with great sadness that we share our eleventh student fell in the hostage rescue of June 8th. Superintendent Arnon Zmora z"l was set to begin his MA in Counter Terrorism at the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy & Strategy at Reichman University. Our condolences go out to his family and we are so grateful for the sacrifice that Arnon made for his country and the hostages he saved. Please read Jonathan Davis’s story about this heroic young man.

Campus has been buzzing with year end activities and we would like to congratulate our graduating Class of 2023!

Our honorary doctorate ceremony took place and this year’s honorees were chosen for their heroism to Israel. It was an honor for the university to recognize them and their continued work on behalf of the State.

Our supporters continue to be true partners in ensuring that Reichman University can flourish during this very difficult time of war and that our students are well taken care of as they return from reserves. I can’t thank you enough. Your Zionist spirit keeps us going!

Please note the annual Conference for the Institute for Counterterrorism has been moved to October 6-8.

We are wishing everyone a quiet and safe summer. If you are in Israel, please stop by campus. We would love to see you.

Warmest Wishes,
