UK Co-Chairs, Lady Irene Hatter and Mr Peter Kadas hosted a gala dinner at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in London to support Haifa’s International Holocaust Research Institute and to preview “The Story That Had to Be Told”, a film about WWII resistance hero, Sally Noach. The event included compelling guest speakers and was a wonderful success raising over $500,000. Thanks to the people who came and supported, Haifa's international students will get the training they need to educate the next generation about the Holocaust.
The University of Haifa won the first ever Defense Ministry tender for military colleges which is expected to bring several hundred military officers, commanders and members of the public sector to the university in the next coming years. “These men and women, who are dear to our hearts, operate day and night for the sake of the defense and security of the State of Israel, and we will provide them educational content of the highest standard”, university president Prof. Ron Robin said in a statement.
The university plans to grow by 100,000 square meters till 2030, enabling a 50% increase in student capacity. This would mean growing from an 18,000 student capacity to 28,000 using an immersive approach; integrating with the city and promoting a much needed urban rejuvenation. Though it may sound far-fetched, it is possible and already happening thanks to the support of the municipality of Haifa and a $10 million donation towards a downtown campus from American philanthropist Lorry Lokey. “This gift is an affirmation of its mission to improve access to education and bring more jobs, stability, and security to northern Israel by establishing a downtown campus”, Lokey said in a statement.
