Jacques & Adela Kluger Memorial for ALS Research

Jacques Kluger’s fatal illness, a terrible one, is known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. ALS is rare — it strikes about five in 100,000 people and affects some 350,000 people world-wide.

In his memory, in 2000, his wife Adela and his 3 sons Jean, Roland and Ludo decided to launch at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem “the Jacques Kluger Memorial Fund for Research into ALS.”.

In 2011, we were proud and happy to be part of the funding that lead Prof. Gruenbaum’s research into “Factor in keeping genes in good order & preventing disease”.

In 2014/2015 Nancy Frates did launch a unique campaign known under “ice bucket ”.
