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.”
