Meet Dr. Beth PM @ Technion
From the President
Welcome to this spring 2012 edition of Technion LIVE. In these days we are celebrating the redemption of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt through the festival of Passover. Also in this time, we celebrate 100 years since April 11th, 1912 - the day when the first cornerstone was placed to physically declare the intent to create a first center of higher learning for the Jewish people in what was then Ottoman-occupied Palestine.

We must never forget the creative space that comes before a great inspiration. Whether it was the urge of Moses to redeem his people through a great leap of trust into the wilderness, or whether it was the early visionaries of the Technion - who saw that the Jewish people could be freed from centuries of bloodshed and antisemitism in the Diaspora by taking physical responsibility for their destiny and by moving also with a great leap of faith into the unknown.

Prof. Peretz Lavie
