Shalva Zivion is Celebrating 75th Birthday

We would like to congratulate Professor Shalva Zivion (Tcitciashvili) of Tel-Aviv University for his 75th birthday. Dear Shalva, as a leading member of the Israeli Georgian Jewish intelligentsia, your academic accomplishments are remarkable. However, unlike most scholars who choose to remain within their academic realms, you did not limit your activity to the Israeli academics. In addition to your scholarly work, you have been actively engaged in our country’s sociopolitical life.

From the day you have arrived to Israel, you have been actively seeking to enhance the welfare of Georgian Jewish immigrants and promote their cause. Your accomplishments are too long to list here. We will mention just a few. You served as our community’s representative in “Alia,” an independent political party, which run for elections for the Israeli Parliament. During the same period, you successfully served as the Vice President of the Georgian Jewish Immigrants Association. You have initiated the formation and establishment of the Israel Meteorological Association, and served as its President for many years. We are very proud to note also that your accomplishments have been recognized by the Cambridge International Biographical Center by including you in Year 2000-Edition of the World’s Most Accomplished Scholars.

It is admirable to see the depth of your engagement in the Israeli academic life, and the concern, the care, and the loyalty you demonstrate for young university students and for newly arrived immigrant scientists, whom you are assisting in may different ways.

To the nightly husband, and a warm father and grandfather. We wish you many more years of productive and fulfilling life.
