Honoring the Battle against Antisemitism
The Center is pleased to share the following news:
Prof. Dina Porat named Ramat Hasharon’s Honorary Citizen for 2021
Next year, the city of Ramat Hasharon will celebrate its 100th anniversary, commemorating its establishment in 1922 as Ir Shalom (City of Peace) on lands purchased from several Arab landowners. Originally a small moshav (an agricultural settlement), Ramat Hasharon became a city in 2002 with a population of over 50,000. Every year, the city council nominates four candidates as honorary citizens, from which the mayor selects a single honoree. This year, the Ramat Hasharon selected Prof. Dina Porat, the Founding Head of the Center, as the city’s honorary citizen in acknowledgment of all her contributions to fighting antisemitism and to the community she and her family have lived since 1976.
