A sad announcement – passing away of our colleague Eyal Shimoni

Dear ISM members and friends,

It is with deep sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Eyal Shimoni on Saturday, July 22.

Eyal passed away this morning after a serious illness.

Eyal was part of the ISM board for many years and served as the secretary and chair of ISM between the years 2009-2017. Eyal has contributed greatly to ISM and we are very grateful for that.

On behalf of the Israel Society for Microscopy, we send our condolences to Eyal’s family.

Best regards,

Yaron Kauffmann (Chair, ISM)

New “ISM – The Israel Society for Microscopy” WhatsApp Group

Dear ISM members and friends,

Recently many ISM members reported that some emails sent from ISM were blocked or rejected by the servers of the universities and institutes.
 
Therefore the ISM board decided to open an ISM WhatsApp group where all important messages will be posted as a backup to the emails.

The “ISM – The Israel Society for Microscopy” WhatsApp group is meant only for updates about the following:

  1. Information about important activities of the society
  2. Microscopy related job opportunities
  3. Information about scholarships
  4. Microscopy related news
Anyone who wishes to post important announcements to the group can send the message privately to the group admins and they will post it to the entire group.

The link for joining the group is – https://chat.whatsapp.com/JmkQ70kn3s0EPN4bAQGhnD

With best wishes,

Yaron Kauffmann (Chair, ISM)
George Levi (Secretary, ISM)
Alexander Upcher (Treasurer, ISM)
