    Bar-Ilan University Cancer Research Project Named #1 Scientific Breakthrough of 2017

    A compound that disables cancer cells, developed by a Bar-Ilan University researcher, has been named by Israel21C as the #1 scientific breakthrough of the year in Israel. Bar-Ilan Prof. Uri Nir identified an enzyme called FerT in the energy-generating mitochondria of metastatic cancer cells. When he targeted FerT in lab mice, the malignant cells soon died, preventing the cancer from metastasizing. Using advanced chemical and robotic approaches, Nir’s lab team developed a synthetic compound, which caused a complete collapse of the entire mitochondria power station. “We have treated mice with metastatic cancer and this compound completely cured them with no adverse or toxic affect,” reported Nir. Phase 1 clinical trials are planned over the next 18 months. Prof. Uri Nir is director of the Nano Medicine Center at the Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA) and dean of The Mina and Everard Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences. Having revealed a “trio” of proteins that appear to play a pivotal role in the onset of various cancers, Nir is now dedicated to the development of novel anti-cancer drugs that will target these key regulators.

[Jan 16, 2018] Goldy and Martin shabbos meals

From Rebbetzin Weber:
I am sending out another meal train for Goldy and Martin. For those of you who don't know them, they are a Yachad couple who come to shul every shabbos. Over the past 3 months several members of our shul invited them for shabbos lunch. The families reported back to me how much they enjoyed having them and most importantly, how special Goldy and Martin felt by being included and invited into the various members homes.

Feel free to contact those who hosted them for feedback.... and then please sign up by going to the website below. (Hosts- Tovit Rubin, Naomi Levi, Annie Kammer, Nolene Maresky, Karen Sitnik, Judy Habot.... I apologize if I left anyone out)


Thank you and stay warm!
