Ariel University recently made its opening event in the United Kingdom at the official residence of Israel’s Ambassador to the Court of Saint James, Her Excellency Tzipi Hotovely.

The Ambassador declared her personal connection with the University to a packed crowd of leading British entrepreneurs, community leaders and philanthropists. She spoke of her direct involvement with the efforts spearheading the recognition Ariel as a full research university during her time in Knesset, where she served as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of Diaspora Affairs, Minister of Settlement Affairs, and a lawmaker for the Likud party.

She also expressed a certain pride when describing the dynamic growth and accomplishments the University has made in research and academic excellence in under a decade.

Industrialist David Morris, Chairman of The British Friends of Ariel University, coordinated the event with Stephen Pack, former President of the United Synagogues. Morris opened the evening by sharing a personal reflection on the University’s impact on him and his family.

The Morris family generously donated and continues to support The Conrad & Ruth Morris Medical Simulation Center, which has saved lives by being a vital training facility for University medical students, IDF medics, MDA and Search & Rescue teams.

Leading Social Projects

Ariel University President, Prof. Yehuda Shoenfeld, spoke of the immense impact the University has had on him since becoming president merely a half year ago. He proudly described the many noteworthy breakthroughs in medical research the University has achieved.

AU Senior Vice President Bobby Brown highlighted the critically important social projects that the university prioritizes, taking the lead among colleges and universities in making higher education accessible to the Ethiopian community, students on the periphery, and a unique specialized program to assist students on the autistic spectrum.

Dr. Igor Koman, head of Personalized Medicine, shared that Ariel University is at the vanguard of advancing Personalized Medicine in Israel.

Culminating the evening, the inaugural event of The British Friends of Ariel University, Adrian Treger, Director of Donor Relations, asked those present to raise a glass of the ancient Jewish wines produced in the University’s Samson Family Wine Research Center. “L’Chaim,” the audience exclaimed in chorus.
