Events Related to Israel Studies
It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of our esteemed colleague and former AIS President (between 2011 and 2013), Professor Gad Barzilai who passed away earlier today at the age of 65.
Gadi was an exceptional scholar and an inspiring leader who made significant contributions to the field of Israel Studies.
Gadi was a world-renowned scholar whose groundbreaking research and influential publications in the areas of law, politics, and human rights made him a leading figure in our field. As President of our association, he provided visionary leadership and inspired us all with his passion for knowledge and intellectual inquiry.
We extend our deepest condolences to Gadi’s family during this difficult time. He will be deeply missed. His legacy will live on through his scholarship and the impact he made on our association and the wider academic community.
We will be honoring Gadi at our upcoming conference in New York, where we will pay tribute to his life and work.
