SASSOON, Vidal American Friends of The Hebrew University and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem are profoundly saddened by the passing of our cherished friend Vidal Sassoon, a brilliant businessman and visionary who founded The Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism at Hebrew University. Vidal Sassoon maintained a lifelong dedication to Israel, actively seeking to eradicate antisemitism worldwide. At The Hebrew University, through the Center bearing his name, Vidal Sassoon helped to advance the highest levels of scholarship, research, and outreach. Vidal Sassoon received an honorary doctorate from Hebrew University. A Benefactor of the University, he was awarded the Judas L. Magnes Award in recognition of his humanitarianism. He served as an Honorary Governor of the University's International Board of Governors, as an Honorary Vice President of national AFHU and as President Emeritus of AFHU's Western Region.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Ronnie and his children, Eden, Elan and David. May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that memorial donations be sent to American Friends of The Hebrew University in support of The Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism-AFHU, 11500 W.
