SECURITY EMPLOYEE: It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Bassam Abu Ghannam early March 19, 2015. He passed away in a hospital following complications from kidney failure and pneumonia. He leaves behind his wife, Abeer, and five children. Age 52, Bassam served the Jerusalem Center for almost 28 years. His dedication, professionalism, integrity and warm interactions with everyone, but especially with students and expatriates over these many years will be missed by anyone who crossed paths with him and by future students and expats who will not have an opportunity to know him.
