Barbara Streisand.

Legendary American actress, director, singer, producer, composer, philanthropist and activist Barbra Streisand will receive an honorary doctor of philosophy degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem next month.

The honorary doctorate will be presented to Ms. Streisand in recognition of her professional achievements, humanitarianism, leadership in human and civil rights, and dedication to Israel and the Jewish people.

Hebrew University President Professor Menahem Ben-Sasson said, “Barbra Streisand’s transcendent talent is matched by her passionate concern for equality and opportunity for people of every gender and background. Equally important, her love of Israel and her Jewish heritage are reflected in so many aspects of her life and career.”

  • A COMPLETE DISREGARD DISRESPECT TO JEWS JUDAISM AND THE ”ONE G-D”.
    DIVORCES A JEWISH HUSBAND VIOLATES TORAH, THATS ”VIOLATES” G-DS LAW BY MARRYING A GOY…

    AND now that institution honors her………..
    doesnt say much for the institution and Israel if the institution was in charge of t he world.

    Even her shul in midwood/flatbush brooklyn NY refused her million dallor donation many years ago because of her marrige… and t hat shul was in utter decay in dire need of any donantion.

    THE FACTS MAN JUST THE FACTS

    “Leadership in human and civil rights…”?
    “Love of Israel?”

    Could someone be more definitive? Basically, what is it she has supposedly done to earn her this honor?
