Welcome to AABGU’s New England community. As executive director of the Northeast, I’m honored to lead this region along with committed lay leaders from the Boston area. We are delighted to share the inspiring story of Ben-Gurion University of Negev with you.

The Negev is experiencing significant growth unlike anything it’s ever seen before. What used to be a desolate landmass is now filled with a thriving community, including BGU’s vibrant student body and faculty.

We invite you to get involved and see firsthand how special this institution is. Join us at one of our upcoming events. We showcase dynamic speakers discussing topics that include advancements in diabetes research, environmental science, Israel studies, global health, and much more.

Next time you visit Israel, please add BGU to your itinerary and allow us to plan a personalized tour of campus.

This is an exciting time for BGU and we couldn’t be where we are today without the partnership and support from people like you.
