Reconnect with the Faculty!
I call upon you help us reestablish contact - with you, and with other graduates who have studied here at the Faculty since its inception.
My name is Benny Hefetz and I have been the Dean of the faculty since October 2017. I was born and raised in Rishon Lezion, to a family that was among the first settlers of the city, and to dairy farmers from Beer Tuvia. All my academic training was at the Faculty of Agriculture. I finished my first degree in 1992, in the Department of Soil and Water Sciences, and completed my doctorate in 1998. Since 2001, I have been a faculty member in the Department of Soil and Water Sciences, and have served in many positions in the department, the teaching program, and the faculty as a whole. I am proud to lead the Faculty as Dean today.
Our faculty has always been characterized as an exceptionally welcoming and informal teaching and research institution. For many of us, the faculty served as a unique study incubator and a warm home. I suppose that you, like me, still have a warm spot in your heart for this place, where we spent such beautiful years. It is important for us to strengthen the connection between the Faculty and all its graduates. We believe there is room for joint activity to strengthen recognition of agricultural practices, food production and dietary habits, while preserving the environment. Israeli agriculture has undergone many changes in recent years, and we in the faculty are the stable anchor of agricultural academia. We would be happy to share news with you from time to time about what is happening on campus and we would like to make use of your experience.
