[9 September 2016] Check Point Building cornerstone

 

Gil Shwed, founder and CEO of Check Point Software Technologies, is one of Israel's most prominent high-tech entrepreneurs. He is also a firm supporter of programs that promote excellence in STEM education from high school to university, and others that advance under-achievers towards a matriculation certificate.


Check Point and the Rashi Foundation are cooperating in a major project at Tel Aviv University – construction of a new building that will house both the Unit for Science-Oriented Youth and the School of Computer Science, enabling them to operate side by side while sharing some of the building’s facilities.


The building's distinctive architectural design is inspired by the concept of cloud computing, using digital technology to create a constantly-changing "skin" that blends with the sky and reflects the virtual world of computers.


At the recent cornerstone ceremony, TAU President Prof. Joseph Klafter awarded Shwed a certificate of appreciation for his dedication to promoting programs for youth and university students.

As part of the ceremony, Hubert signed the historic guest book of Mikve Israel, which was signed in the past by distinguished figures such as Presidents Zalman Shazar and Haim Herzog, Prime Ministers David Ben Gurion and Itzhak Rabin, and others.
