The faculty held an online year-opening event via Zoom in the presence of students, faculty, researchers and staff. Dean Ehud Behar wished the participants a healthy, productive and successful academic year and reviewed selected events and publications from the past six months (see articles on the faculty website under "News" and "Research bits"). The physics student council representative Jessica Braudo spoke about the activities planned for this year with an emphasis on maintaining student activity even in the age of distance learning.
