      With increasing security threats across the globe, Hebrew University of Jerusalem Professor Shmuel Peleg’s BriefCamⓇ is a groundbreaking private eye for public safety. BriefCamⓇ utilizes video synopsis technology, which allows for the simultaneous display of objects, events, and activities that occurred at different times in one location. The potentially lifesaving technology was acquired by Canon in May 2018 and has been used at major global events, including the Boston Marathon, Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebrations, and the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics.

      This is just one example of the work you fund when you donate to American Friends of Hebrew University. Founded in 1925, AFHU is a national, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, headquartered in New York City. We connect the passions of Americans to the talent at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, one of the world’s most distinguished academic and research institutions. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is located in Israel, but its work transforms our world. Its students, faculty, and alumni have won eight Nobel Prizes, developed treatments for diseases, and ignited innovation that has led to more than 8,900 patents.

      Discover how you can advance knowledge in technology, medicine, internet security, and more.
