Our Generous Donors

The Weiss-Livnat International MA Program in Holocaust Studies was created with and is sustained by the generous support of our donors.  

Our Founder, Yitzhak Livnat z"l

 The Weiss-Livnat International MA Program in Holocaust Studies is named after the founder of the program, Yitzhak Livnat z"l. Yitzhak was a Holocaust survivor from Hungary and it is with great pride and honor that our program memorializes his and his family's story. The first five Cohorts of the MA Program had the honor to meet with and hear Yitzhak's incredible personal story of survival and triumph. Since Yitzhak's passing in 2017, the legacy of the Weiss-Livnat MA Program is preserved by his son and daughter-in-law, Honorary Dr. and Mrs. Doron and Marianne Livnat.

Doron and Marianne Livnat have ensured the legacy of Yitzhak Livnat's memory through their generous financial support of the MA program in Holocaust Studies. In 2019 they expanded their significant donation by endowing the funds to create an international, academic center, The Weiss-Livnat International Center for Holocaust Research and Education. The center is the umbrella organization under which the MA Program, The Journal of Holocaust Research, and the many academic and commemorative Holocaust events can flourish. We are incredibly grateful for their continued friendship and charitable contributions.

 

At the University of Haifa's 44th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors in 2016, Doron Livnat was awarded an honorary doctorate in recognition of his outstanding leadership, which blends business success and far-reaching public and social activity; on his assistance to disadvantaged groups in society, out of an understanding and belief that strengthening them is the best guarantee of a more moral, just and successful society; on the contribution to promoting study and research of the Holocaust at the University of Haifa to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and pass the narrative on to future generations; on the continued support of the “Access for All” program and its impact on the population in northern Israel; and on his being an ambassador for the University of Haifa all around the world.
