Updates as of December 2021

As we approach the end of 2021, a most challenging year for us all, I am pleased to share with you some of the accomplishments that have made this year such a memorable one for JCT. The tone we’ve together set for a successful Tal Campus for Women capital campaign is extraordinary. A few highlights:  

  • With a remarkable $60 million+ raised to date, we were able to expand the scope of the first phase of our project to include all four academic buildings in Phase 1 of our construction plans, to be supported by an increased campaign goal of $100 million.
  • We have been in contact with the Council of Higher Education, The Ministry for Jerusalem Affairs and the Municipality of Jerusalem who have all agreed to support our campaign and we are hopeful that additional government support will follow.
  • We expect to be granted our excavation and foundation permits by the second quarter of 2022.  
  • We are nearing final planning for the Garden of Psalms by renowned artist Ofra Friedland that promises to be the aesthetic centerpiece of the new Tal Campus, and which we believe will engage a new circle of donors as we present it to the public in the months ahead.
