I became one of Avner's many students last year. He was truly a wonderful and inspiring professor who had so much to offer. I am saddened by his passing, and the posts here are all so touching. One need not look further to know this manwas loved and cherished. He will be greatly missed.

May you rest in peace, Avner Magen. You will be forever loved and not be forgotten.
