The Mexican Friends Association of Tel Aviv University held a conference at the Mount Sinai Community Center near Mexico City, with Lieutenant General Benny Gantz, a TAU alum and supporter, the featured guest speaker. The former Chief of Staff regaled the gathering of over one hundred people from the Jewish community with stories of his time in the IDF.
He also offered his unique perspective on how Israel and the IDF are dealing with the vast array of challenges they face on a daily basis.
Also in attendance were Jonathan Peled, Israeli ambassador to Mexico, Jaime Murow, President of Mexican Friends, and Karen Rossow, Executive Director of Mexican Friends.
The successful event helped raise much needed money for the Mexican Scholarship Fund, which assists Mexican students who are candidates to study at TAU.
