Shalom from AABGU in the Northwest! Thank you for your interest in learning more about Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and about upcoming local events and opportunities to meet outstanding BGU faculty members visiting our area.

The involvement of people like you has helped Ben-Gurion University become a leader in fields like medicine, alternative energy, desert agriculture, water purification, nanotechnology, biotechnology, cyber security, and much more. Your generosity fosters continued excellence in higher education, cutting-edge research and community development that benefits the Negev, Israel and the world.

We look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the most meaningful way to connect to BGU. Please contact us – whether you’d like to meet for coffee or receive an invitation to our next event. And if you’re planning a trip to Israel, be sure to let us know so we can arrange a personalized tour for you.
