Some of the projects at Bar-Ilan that have come about through the support of BFBIU.
The Tager Family Jewish Law Program
This is a groundbreaking initiative, sponsored by our Chairman, Mr. Romie Tager QC and his wife Esther, that applies ancient Jewish law to contemporary issues. The program involves an annual international conference on areas of Jewish law and the interrelationship between law and religion, publication of books on Jewish law and fellowships of excellence to doctoral students in the field of Jewish law and the interrelationship between law and religion.

We acknowledge the Patrons, Sponsors and all participating members of the community, and in particular Dr Sami Shamoon for their support in establishing this centre.

Through the largesse of Dr. Naim Dangoor, OBE, Bar-Ilan University was able to grant one time financial assistance to 500 undergraduate students from all of our faculties. This was the first gift in the University’s history that benefited so many students at one time and the recipients, faculty and staff are most appreciative of this noble gesture.
