Professor Amnon Pazy served continuously on the BSF Board of Governors from 1997 until his death in August 2006. During this period, he was twice elected chairman of the board.

Prof. Pazy, who was a well-known mathematician, was also a leader in Israeli higher education. His long and impressive career included the presidency of Hebrew University and chairing the Planning and Budgeting Committee of the Council for Higher Education VATAT). The foundation gained greatly from his considerable experience in science, science management, academic affairs, and public service in general.
