Dear friends,
Rosh Hashanah is a time for joy, new beginnings, celebrations and counting our blessings.

As we reflect upon all we have accomplished this past year, we are very grateful to have so many dear friends and supporters who join us in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of Netanya's residents. We couldn't do it without you!

We send you all best wishes for a year filled with peace, happiness, good health and continued success. I would like to wish each and every one of you a Shanah Tova Umetukah – a good and sweet new year!

Chag Sameach,
Shlomi

 

Sagi Muki World Champion 
 

Last month Sagi Muki became the first Israeli male to win the Judo World Championship. The 27-year-old Netanya native bested the Belgian Judoka in the heavyweight final. This is Sagi's first world title, after two gold medals at the European Championships in 2015 and 2018. 

Netanya held a reception and celebration for the Judoka and his coach Oren Smadja, who is also a resident of Netanya. The event took place in the Planetania and was attended by the Honorary President of the Netanya Foundation and Mayor of Netanya, Miriam Fierberg-Ikar, the Ambassador of Japan in Israel, H.E. Koichi Aiboshi, Sagi's sponsors and supporters, family, and friends. 

Sagi's next goal is the Olympics 2020. We are all rooting for him and wish him the best of luck! 

Scholarships Awarded to University Students 

This year 61 students who are pursuing their higher education received scholarships donated by Annie Gnat (Canada) and her daughters in loving memory and in honor of her late husband, Albert Gnat. Albert had a true love for education and for Israel. He believed that with hard work, dedication and confidence, anything was possible.

Annie Gnat's remarks, as presented at the Scholarship Distribution Ceremony included words of encouragement from her husband's Albert life. "He believed that if you had the desire, passion, confidence and the dedication to strive for your academic dreams - anything was possible."

We would like to wish all the recipients good luck in the upcoming academic year!
