Weizmann Canada hosted a special evening of science and cheer at its annual Celebrating Philanthropy event in October.

National Board Chair Jeff Cohen, who served as emcee for the evening, reflected on a successful year and recognized the impact Canadian donors have made on the Weizmann Institute. Guests were taken on a journey to “imagine the future” during an exploration of the world of artificial intelligence featuring Prof. Yaron Lipman from the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, whose research will be part of an exciting new flagship initiative, the Artificial Intelligence Center for Scientific Exploration.

 

Dr. Daniel C. Andreae was presented with the Outstanding Leadership Award in recognition of his dedicated support and the role he plays helping to raise awareness for the Weizmann Institute. Vice Chair and Toronto Chapter President Francie Klein welcomed new members to the Vera and Chaim Weizmann Honour Society from Toronto: Judith Benattar, Sandra and Mike Florence, and Terry Rosen. Co-chairs of the Vera and Chaim Honour Society in Canada are Joanne Nemeroff and Ms. Klein.
