A Great Start
Our inaugural event on 15 May 2008 was an enormous success and we welcomed over a hundred HU alumni to the HE Israel Ambassador's residence, in the presence of the President of the Hebrew University Professor Menachem Magidor.
The Ambassador, an Alum with two degrees from the Hebrew University, told of how it's a great privilege for him to be a part of the Alumni Association and called upon the Alumni to represent the Hebrew University and the State of Israel with pride and to fight the academic boycott that has once more become an issue in the UK.
The President of the Hebrew University was delighted to meet so many alumni in London and congratulated the UK Alumni Association for providing an excellent role model for a global network of HU Alumni. “Within the next few months HU alumni will be able to communicate with each other all over the world. This is a huge breakthrough for the Hebrew University, following in the footsteps of other Ivy League Universities such as Harvard, Duke and Oxbridge”.
