Fifty Years Later...
More than one third of the alumni from the Hebrew University’s first yearlong international program returned for a fifty year reunion. Ten former students, together with their spouses, met for six days of activities, culminating in a gala dinner with the Board of Governors. Many of these alumni had not seen each other since they were students at the Hebrew University. “Some people thought of having the reunion in New York, but I wanted to bring it to Israel,” explains Dr. David Blumenfeld, chairman of the alumni reunion committee. “In New York, we would just be some old-timers shooting the breeze, but in Israel, we can join in solidarity with the Board of Governors. We want to raise the profile of the international program. We were the pioneers, and now we are returning fifty years later with hope for a successful future.”
