The American singer, who will be staying for the next two nights in Jerusalem, will receive an honorary doctorate on Monday from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Streisand will be presented with the degree at a ceremony during the Hebrew University International Board of Governors meeting.
“Of course I thought of my father [when I was told of the award],” she said. “It was my great honor to dedicate the Emanuel Streisand Building at Hebrew University many years ago. The thing that I love most about the university is that people of all faiths and philosophies are welcome to study there.”
