Dr. Younes Nazarian, a longtime supporter of ASUH and the University of Haifa, was on campus to see the latest renovations to the expansion of the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Library, scheduled for completion in Spring 2012.

The Younes and Soraya Nazarian Library, already one of Israel’s most comprehensive, is home to over two million books and electronic materials. The new Library will be inaugurated during this summer’s Board of Governor’s Meetings (June 3-5), celebrating the University’s 40th anniversary.

The magnificent piece of artwork, designed by Soraya Nazarian, is intended to compliment the recently renovated wings of the Library and evokes the story of the Jewish People in Exodus.
