Gen. Shimon Erem Z"L
In 2009, the Shimon Erem Israel Experience Scholarship honored Shimon Erem who has throughout his life given himself without reservation to the enduring promise of the Jewish Homeland, courageously served his nation both in war and in peacetime, and has dedicated himself to seek the good of the people and the land of Israel strategically building bridges of friendship and mutual respect with those outside of Israel.
Gen. Erem, passed away in May 2012. May His memory be for a blessing (Z"L). Danielle, his wife and partner of 42 years has carried on his legacy of building bridges and strengthening Israel.
