The Weizmann Institute marked the passing of the Hon. Sir David Sieff with a dedication of the Sir David Sieff English Garden on campus at the International Board meeting in November 2019.

 

Sir David was a dedicated friend of the Weizmann Institute and Lifetime President of Weizmann UK. His family’s history is deeply entwined with the Institute’s own as the original Daniel Sieff Research Institute was established in 1934 thanks to a visionary gift from Sir David’s grandparents, Israel and Rebecca Sieff.

 

A fitting tribute was paid to Sieff at the dedication of the new English Garden named in his honour. Lady Sieff spoke movingly about Sir David’s passion for the Institute and how much the dedication of the garden means to the Sieff family.
