New Recanati Lab Dedicated (3rd from r.) dedicated a maritime lab in his mother’s honor. Sharing the moment are
(from r.) Vice President Prof. Ada Spitzer, Recanati Institute Head Prof. Ehud Spanier, Mr. Recanati,
and University President Prof. Aaron Ben-Ze’ev.

New Recanati Lab Dedicated  recalled his family’s continuous support of the University over the past 32 years as he dedicated the newest lab of the Leon Recanati Institute of Maritime Studies in honor of his mother. These labs, he noted, had been on the Institute’s “wish list” for a long time. “I am glad I am able to fulfill the needs and wishes of this Institute,” he said. “They will enable improvement of the quality of work produced by this Institute.” The laboratories will enable preservation of marine mammals and better investigation of underwater finds, according to the Institute’s Head, Assoc. Prof. Ehud Spanier. The dedication ceremony took place as one of the events of the 33rd Board of Governors Meeting.
