My name is Adar Shatz, and I am currently a first year graduate student in The Honors graduate Program in Public Policy, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I was born in 1982 in Ness Ziona, a small town south of Tel Aviv. I am the eldest of my siblings and have a younger brother and sister...
In 2005 I moved to Jerusalem and began a BA degree in the Hebrew University, studying Economics, Philosophy and Politics. My main interests during that period were environmental issues, such as preservation, pollution, and environmental ethics. In the year that followed my graduation, I started working as a research assistant at The Myers-Joint-Brookdale Institute, which focuses on applied social research. In my work I am currently focusing on immigration topics, as well as coordinating an outcome measurement project with the ministry of welfare.
This year I began my master's degree in The Honors Graduate Program in Public Policy. Last week I was informed that I had received a merit scholarship on behalf of The David Diego Ladowski Memorial Fund.
I wish to express my deepest gratitude to The David Diego Ladowski Memorial Fund, for honoring me with the privilege of receiving this merit scholarship. This past year has been one of the most intellectually challenging and fascinating years of my life, as the academic world met with my professional life to create a more complete, if somewhat disturbing image, of the public sphere in Israel.
Being recognized as an honor student has made it all the more worthwhile, and for that I wish to thank you. It is my hope that this fund will continue to help create a better, more professional, public service and public policy in Israel.
As we all know, there is a lot of work to be done in this field, and with your support, starting it has become a great deal easier.
Thank you again.
All the best,

I was born 27 years ago in Jerusalem. I am a student of the Hebrew university as my parents and brothers before me.
After I finished a three-year service in the navy I started my B.A studies in International relations and education.
Actually, the domains of international relations, politics, public policy and education have fascinated me since I was a small child. These days, after concluding most of my courses, I am looking for work in the public sector and hope to start influencing soon.
Studying public policy in Israel at a high level is giving me great pleasure. I hope to take everything I have learned and put it in to practice as quickly as I can. Israel is facing many challenges, both external and internal, and needs the best public sector possible in order to cope with them.
David's story, who immigrated to Israel by himself and studied public policy in our school, is a great inspiration. I am happy and grateful for your choice to carry on working for these goals and making such a significant contribution to the School of Public Policy of which David Diego Ladowski was part of.
As students of the school, we continue the hard work for the improvement of the public sector, and can already see the beginning of a change. I am sure that the assistance you are giving us will help us achieve our common goals.
