Dr. Michael Avishai


It is with a heavy heart that the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens announce the passing of Dr. Michael Avishai, a world-renowned botanist and horticulturist Michael was among the Gardens’ founders, managed the Gardens for many years, and cultivated it for more than five decades by conducting scientific research, writing, and teaching in the Gardens to his last day. A gentle man with an indomitably energetic spirit, he will be sorely missed by all the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens family. May he rest in peace.

The funeral will take place tomorrow, Monday, December 31st, in the Modi’in Cemetery, at 11:00am.
Block: 05, Section B, Row 1, Plot 4.
