Meir Shamgar z"l
The Genesis Prize Foundation joins all of Israel in mourning the passing of Meir Shamgar, former President of the Supreme Court of Israel and founding member of the Genesis Prize Committee. Judge Shamgar had a profound impact on the Court and the rule of law in Israel. We extend our condolences to his wife Michal, his children and grandchildren. May his memory forever be for a blessing.
