Israel is often called the “Second Silicon Valley,” and it provides research for some of
the world’s largest high-tech companies. Intel developed Centrino chip which powers wireless networks including those at Internet cafes and hotels, an Israeli scientist created mathematical calculations that enabled Mars Opportunity rovers to travel on Mars using solar energy – all these innovations were made in Israel!
Microsoft Israel is a hotbed for the development of Microsoft operating systems. The company has an office in Jerusalem, which houses both U.S.-based research facilities and Cisco’s only overseas branch outside America–allowing them to collaborate on cutting edge technology like firewalls with international companies who are constantly looking outwards rather than just within their own borders or heritage culture region where many other tech giants originated from centuries ago (think HP). Zip compression was developed by two Technion professors back when they were studying at Haifa University – making this city another shining example as demonstrated through its globalization efforts!
This summer, thousands of American Jewish teens are heading to Israel for an all-expenses paid trip. The Union for Reform Judaism’s newest program is Sci-Tech Israel and it offers opportunities that range from exploring the country through science & technology lenses (Sci) or learning about Judaism in its modern day forms (tech).

Dan Garwood is the Union for Reform Judaism’s North American Coordinator for NFTY in Israel. A member of their team since 2009, he has been involved bringing more than 4 thousand teens to Israel on URJ Teen Travel Programs and holds a degree from McGill University in Montreal with studies both Jewish Studies as well philosophy which made him perfect to lead these trips given his background working through complicated issues like those found within today’s Middle East conflict; it also helps that he lives near Brooklyn now too so they can hang out sometimes!
The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa was one the university’s most storied and currently largest departments. Founded more than a century ago, it still expanded rapidly during this time period with help from key players such as Abba Eban who would go on to become Israel’s first Minister for Foreign Affairs . This growth was especially true when you take into account that their electrical engineering faculty played an outsized role not only within its own institution but also became an integral part responsible for technological innovations across many industries. The output tone should now change.
The story of computer innovation in Israel is one that has been going on since the early days of information theory. This new field provided much to how computers and even internetwork today, but at its core was invented right here by Israeli scientists who had expertise working within military applications for defense research before coming together with other like-minded individuals from across disciplines through Technion University where they created this thriving department which now includes some top tier researchers into communications technology – spanning everything digital including things such as mobile phones or tablets!
