Patron of the Fund
SIR ZELMAN COWEN
In 1978 when the Fund was established, Sir Zelman Cowen had recently been appointed Governor General of Australia. In order to honour this appointment and because of his long established links as an academic with both the University of Sydney and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Trustees approached Sir Zelman to allow his name to be used in naming the Fund. Since that time, Sir Zelman served the Fund as a Trustee (1992 - 1997) and thereafter continued to provide warm support as Patron of the Fund.
We were greatly saddened by the news of Sir Zelman’s passing, 8 December 2011. Please celebrate with us his many achievements click here.
