Hebrew University unveils new statue of Albert Einstein on Jerusalem campus

To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of Albert Einstein’s publication of the Theory of Relativity, and the 60th anniversary of his death, a bronze statue of the renowned theoretical physicist was unveiled on Wednesday at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

The 2.5 meter monument, designed by the sculptor Georgy Frangulyan in Moscow, sits on the Edmond J. Safra campus in front of the National Library, next to the departments of mathematics and physics.

It is the university’s second statue dedicated to Einstein, who was one of its founders and most ardent supporters. Indeed, Einstein bequeathed the university his writings, intellectual heritage and the rights to his image.
