Help Protect Ben-Gurion University


Dear Friends,

As it starts getting colder and we start to see some snow, our thoughts often turn to making charitable donations before the end of the year to be included when submitting our tax returns for 2012.

In the past, The Canadian Associates of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (CABGU) received support through the collection of annual membership dues. This approach is no longer consistent with charitable governance in Canada nor with the goals and strategies of CABGU as we strive to support the University.

During the past year, southern Israel has absorbed quite a few thousand rocket, mortar and missile strikes emanating from Gaza. BGU’s main campus in Beer-Sheva is within range of these weapons and some have fallen very close to the campus. In late October rockets reached the Beer-Sheva area, and in March of this year, the start of a new school term had to be delayed due to the frequency of attacks in the area.

The campus has grown significantly in recent years and is occupied most hours of the day by over 20,000 people. The Israel Defence Forces Home Front Command’s sirens and alerts warning people to enter and leave bomb shelters and safe-rooms, currently do not reach all areas of this campus. Due to this situation, there is an urgent need to upgrade a central Public Announcement System on the Beer-Sheva campus of BGU to broadcast information in real time, which will be managed in collaboration with the Home Front Command.

Join us in providing this urgently needed system to those at BGU. With you as our partner, we can show the students and staff at BGU, as well as the citizens of Beer-Sheva that the Canadian Associates of BGU are here to support them.

As David Ben Gurion said “It is in the Negev that the creativity and pioneer vigor of Israel shall be tested.”

With a thriving economy in the centre of the country, the true pioneers in Israel today are those helping to develop the Negev, of which Ben-Gurion University is a critical component. Please take the time to support this project by making a donation online at www.bengurion.ca/bgu/donate.
