Eminent Israeli medical Professor Yehuda Skornick arrives in SA on Friday to deliver the keynote address at a Zionism event on the weekend.

He will also deliver speeches at both Wits and UCT during IAW. Prof Skornick has published over 1,000 medical papers, is the immediate past president of MDA Israel, he is Israel’s appointed member (ambassador) to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Skornick has also founded - and funds - two Yeshivot in Tel Aviv in memory of late father-in-law.

Skornik Professor Yehuda Prof Skornick (pictured, right) is also a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Cancer Research. He is also a member of both the European and American Societies of Surgical Oncology. He will be hosted in SA by MDA-SA chairman Mark Hyman and his wife Beula.

Skornick, who is Dati, has a tight schedule, but for the benefit of anyone who wants to meet him or hear him speak, his itinerary will be as follows:

He arrives on 7 March and will be davening at Glenhazel Shul at Yeshiva College with Rabbi Tanzer, Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein and Juerg Eglin (the head of mission for the International Committee of the Red Cross in SA).

On Saturday morning he will be at the Mizrachi Shul in the morning and will attend Mincha at Northfield Shul.

On Sunday he will deliver the keynote address at the SA Friends of Israel advocacy conference and will launch the Heart to Heart initiative in SA.

On Monday 10 March Prof Skornick will tour Soweto in the morning before delivering a talk to students at Wits on the first day of Israel Apartheid Week.

On Tuesday morning he will be speaking at a business breakfast sponsored by Citidal and Perigrine – while in the evening he will speaking to Hatzolla and Netcare executives at Hatzolla.

On Wednesday morning he will travel to Cape Town for a lunch with community organisations and invited VIPs after which he will address students at UCT before flying back to Johannesburg.

On Thursday morning Prof Skornik davens with the Yeshiva College boys and will deliver a Shiur. He flies out on Thursday evening.

Just delivering the Sunday keynote and the two IAW campus groups would be a full schedule for a week-long trip – but this is one visitor who plans to make good use of his time and meet as many members of the community as possible.

    I wonder if he'll be abused by the partisans of the ANC/SACP/COSATU
