American Friends of Tel Aviv University
TAU’s American Friends are a cosmopolitan, congenial, and intellectually sophisticated group with a real commitment to Israel's leading institution for higher learning. Founded in 1955, one year before the official dedication of Tel Aviv University, its members share a common vision — to nurture higher education, develop Israel's best minds, and help “expand the future” for people around the world.
American Friends enjoy a stimulating variety of social, cultural and educational activities in cities across the USA throughout the year, many offering uncommon access. These include one-of-a-kind international trips with entree to academic, business and government leaders, and special local programs and presentations.
The American Friends website offers breaking news from TAU researchers and faculty superstars, and full coverage of AFTAU news and events.
