“I know very well that one of the greatest people who have helped Israel is you, your vision will bring Israel in the forefront of awareness, thank you so very much”
- Reuven Rivlin
President of the State of Israel
“I have been a visitor of this country for a very long period of time, and I have been always been fascinated by the extraordinary achievements of a small population has been able to bring about, population that knows from difficulties in earlier days and that has produced a country that has been absolutely a miracle and what Israel and Israelis has been able to accomplished”

“We were incredibly proud to stand alongside our dear uncle, Mort Zuckerman as he was honored at the residence of Reuven Rivlin, the president of Israel, for his $100 million initiative to provide scholarships to the next generation of STEM leaders in the United States and Israel. Together with Mort, we greatly anticipate watching as a network of influential and innovative academic and industry leaders blossom and solidify scientific cooperation between Israel and the United States.”
