Move towards the future
Presenting topics as far ranging as the recent elections in Israel; the Golden Age of Spain; Islam; and Art and the Bible, come naturally to Dr. David Bensoussan. He has been sharing his knowledge with Cummings Centre members for longer than he can remember. “I truly enjoy my classes at Cummings and encourage lively discussions and exchange of ideas,” says David. “Participants are so diverse and questions come from so many different angles.”
Impassioned by history and historical events
A professor in electrical Engineering at the École de Technologie Supérieure, accomplished teacher, author and researcher holding many innovative patents, David is equally impassioned by history and historical events. “If we understand the past, we are better equipped to understand the future,” says David.
How very special Cummings is
A true family affair, David came to know the Centre on a very personal level through his late mother. “My mother enjoyed a full range of activities at Cummings from interesting lectures, cooking lessons and many more,” says David. “I know firsthand how very special Cummings is and how many people it helps as we age.” David’s philosophy is simple – “In life it’s not what you have, it’s what you give.”
