Tel Aviv University held a tree-planting ceremony to honor the memory of the late Annie and Marcel Adams of Montreal, both TAU Honorary Doctors, as well as longtime TAU Governors and benefactors.


Annie Adams passed away in 1997; Marcel passed away in August 2020, just after celebrating his 100th birthday. Their son, Sylvan Adams—Vice-Chair of TAU’s Board of Governors, TAU Honorary Doctor, Global Campaign Cabinet member and second-generation donor—planted two trees outside the Sylvan Adams Sports Institute which he founded, in the presence of TAU President Prof. Ariel Porat, Director of the Sports Institute Prof. Chaim Pick, and members of the Adams family.


“The University has become a family project,” Adams said at the ceremony. “It's my honor to be associated with such a fine institute that is so important to this country, to be part of so many discoveries … [My parents] felt the University is family, and now they have a permanent home here."
