Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) president and professor Daniel Chamovitz presented Israeli President Reuven Rivlin with Israel’s new postage stamp commemorating the university’s 50th anniversary.

Created by Israeli designer Zvika Roitman, the stamp highlights BGU’s focus on innovations in science, technology and commercial collaboration envisioned by Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion.

The imagery includes Ben-Gurion juxtaposed with symbols of the university’s areas of expertise, the DNA bridge connecting the Marcus Family Campus to the Advanced Technologies Park, the Zalman Aranne Central Library and BGU students.

Rivlin will be joining the gala celebrating BGU’s 50th anniversary during the board of governors meeting on May 17.

Support Jewish Journalism
with 2020 Vision

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service. It is an organization devoted to nonstop reporting, and telling the truth about Israel and Jewish issues unburdened by the biases and institutional blinders that distort so much of what we read, hear and see about these topics elsewhere in the secular and even Jewish press.

At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe. But in the age of round-the-clock news coverage, advertising and syndication revenues are not enough to support our continued growth. We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.

Please help us take JNS to the next level with a tax-deductible sponsorship, either on a recurring monthly basis. Jewish News Syndicate is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
