Baroness Ariane de Rothschild, a member of the famous Jewish banking family and head of the Rothschild Foundations, will receive an honorary doctorate degree from Haifa University on Wednesday for her philanthropic work.
The Rothschild Foundation supports several higher education projects in Israel including a campaign aimed at reversing the brain drain by which promising Israeli academics are lured abroad with tempting salaries.
Rothschild is expected to speak at the event.
