    i do not agree with mr shavit that rich donors have no place in helping culture in israel.let those with funds compete with each other to provide money to museums and universities. i do agree that the museum undersold itself.i also agree that further donations would be difficult to raise now that mr sami ofer has used his name in such an ostentatious manner. still mr shavit has written much better stuff.
