Why Einstein?

He would have been proud of the institution he helped create and the method by which funds are being raised. This is expressed by the Yiddish word naches, which the insightful Einstein would have understood. The most recognizable and admired scientist the world has ever produced, he represents a timeless symbol of the dedication to breakthrough discoveries, medical or scientific.

His famous formulation, E=mc2, continues to influence scientific knowledge worldwide. He also has a special connection with Hebrew University, being a member of its original Board of Governors and bequeathing his research papers and literary estate to the institution. He will be a special guiding spirit for IMRIC’s Virtual Marathon
