The Israeli government has unanimously approved the establishment of a museum in Jerusalem dedicated to Albert Einstein, the father of the theory of relativity.

Israeli President Shimon Peres initiated the idea for the museum, which will be built on the Givat Ram campus of Hebrew University.

“This is not just a tourist matter. This is an issue of the greatest value that will grant recognition to the sparks of genius that were hidden in our people and which broke through with Einstein,” Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

In his will, Einstein left his personal papers and intellectual copyrights, as well as the right to use his image, to Hebrew University.
