Black Family Student Club Thrives Again
The Stanley and Joyce Black Family Foundation Student Club is back in action after more than a year of COVID-19 restrictions.
The spacious facility is a buzzing hub of student life located in the Millie Phillips Student City complex. Under the management of the TAU Student Union, the Club runs diverse activities, including exercise classes, social gatherings, stand-up comedy shows and lectures. Thousands of students, among them internationals and Israelis from the country’s social and geographical periphery, regularly frequent the Club.
After a period of closure due to COVID-19, the Club reopened to provide students with a quiet study space, in strict compliance with health regulations. More recently, as students became eligible for vaccines, the Club returned to its regular activities.
The Stanley and Joyce Black Family Foundation Student Club was established by the Black family of California, longtime benefactors of TAU, and dedicated in 2016. For over 40 years, the family has supported important research at TAU, including in medicine and Yiddish language and culture.
