If I had to pick one partnership that is most emblematic of our Foundation’s identity and values it would be the Pears Scholarships Initiative at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It links Jewish values, Israeli expertise and the skills and knowledge of the students themselves to create a truly global cohort of leaders who can create lasting change in their own countries. I am proud and humbled by every Pears scholar I meet and it is a privilege to support them.

The Hebrew University epitomises what is best about Israel. It stands for excellence and inclusion in education which is vital for the future of the state of Israel. Its importance has never been greater in helping to feed and heal the world and we particularly loved meeting Hebrew University students on campus whose enthusiasm is a huge inspiration.

The quality, diversity and all round excellence of the medical faculty of the Hebrew University makes it the ideal recipient of the scholarships the Foundation provides. Meeting the students each year is especially gratifying

Dr Benjamin Angel Foundation, Ruth and Tony Angel

As a scholarship donor, I am always pleased to read the regular reports of academic progress written by the students themselves, and have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the students at the University on several occasions. Their enthusiasm for their subjects and appreciation of the assistance given promotes an enduring connection with the Hebrew University which I find extremely rewarding.
