Last week the Wexner Israel Fellowship held its annual Alumni Institute in Haifa and had a record attendance.  Highlights included the WIF Alumni Band, featuring Dr. Itamar Offer (Class 12) on saxophone, and Tsachi Mushkin (Class 14) Band Maestro, drummer and singer.

Dana Savoray, Chair of the Wexner Israel Fellowship Alumni Council (Class 17) presented the Council’s first Civil Service Innovation Prize to Gil Avriel, awarded for his plan to integrate haredim into Israel’s Civil Service. The Prize was created this year by the Israel Alumni Council with the coordination and support of the Civil Service Commission. .

A special thank you to Dana Savaroy for her outstanding leadership as chair of the Wexner Israel Fellowship Alumni Council.

In next week’s WexnerLEADS there will be a full reflection from an alum about the Institute.
