The recent meeting of Tel Aviv University’s Board of Trustees was concluded with a festive event in the Botanic Garden, which received its new name: "The Yehuda Naftali Botanic Garden". The event took place in mid-May, in the presence of former TAU president, Prof. Yosef Klafter, and Mr. Yehuda Naftali, for whom the Garden was named in recognition of his generous donation for the development and promotion of the Garden. The ceremony in Mr. Naftali's honor constituted a first step in the project for the future development of the Botanic Garden. To commemorate the event, an Acacia raddiana tree was planted at the entrance to the garden, where other native Israeli trees are also planted.
