Einstein is one of the founding fathers of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. To him, the Hebrew University represented a combination of the commitment to his Jewish identity and his belief in the universal values of the pursuit of truth and the respect for every human being. Therefore, it is only natural that he bequeathed his personal papers and intellectual property rights to the Hebrew University and, thereby, made it the eternal home of his intellectual legacy. The university has retained this unique cultural asset of immense importance to mankind, which became the core of the Albert Einstein Archives, maintained and developed by the university over the years. Its holdings are unique – they consist of numerous manuscripts, prolific correspondence as well as additional material that sheds light on Einstein’s scientific achievements, his public activity, his Jewish identity and his private life.
