Maya Vinitsky, curator of the exhibition, and Tanya Cohen-Uzielli, director-general of the Tel Aviv Museum, received their guest, who was impressed by the exhibition that deals with mobilization of urban communities to combat climate change, and presents innovative technological projects in major cities around the world.

At the event, Pollogen launched its new product called TriPollar, which reduces fat and tightens skin.

The visit was held here in Israel after a friendship match with the Israeli women’s team. The goal of the soccer celebration was the development of sports in Israel, as part of a joint Chelsea-Israel Football Association project. During the visit, Chelsea players and their manager, Emma Hayes, held a series of events aimed at promoting sports in Israel. The group visited Jerusalem, where they met up with Abramovich, heard a lecture about the Old City and the Western Wall, and were invited to stick their own personal notes between stones of the Kotel.

Shikun & Binui Chairman Tamir Cohen was chosen as the parents’ representative to welcome 300 new immigrant Lone Soldiers who have just enlisted in this year’s IDF Tzabar Garin. Cohen, who serves as head of the Israel Scouts of Los Angeles, dedicated his remarks to his son Segev and his friends, who will be starting the army this November. The event, held at Tel Aviv University, was attended by Immigration and Absorption Minister Yoav Galant; CEO of Israel Scouts Cali Cohen; CEO of World Israel Scouts Elad Sanderovich; and many guests.
