Israel

On his way back home from Japan, Einstein made a stop in Israel. He clearly made an impression as he was later offered the mostly ceremonial post of Israeli president. Einstein helped establish the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and served on its founding Board of Governors. It is now the home to his official archives where a statue of the physicist (left) greets visitors. In addition, the university announced last year that it would be constructing an Einstein museum, which would be open to the public. In the meantime, Einstein aficionados can attend a performance of Einstein's favorite composer, Mozart, at one of Israel's various concert halls.
