Minister of Welfare and Social Services Isaac Herzog announced Sunday that he had reached an agreement with the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) of Syracuse University to open up a branch of the prestigious research center in Israel. BBI is one of the leading research institutes in the world, focusing on ways to advance the civic, economic and social participation of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society. Professor Peter Blanck, BBI's chairperson, who met with Herzog Sunday, is in Israel this week to participate in the Ministry of Welfare and Social Service's fifth annual conference on people with disabilities and their role in the community, to be held Monday and Tuesday in Haifa's Congress Center.
