Ben-Gurion University Academic Secretary Prof. Ariel Feldestein will receive the Prime Minister’s Prize and the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Literature for 2013 for perpetuating the memory and legacy of late prime minister David Ben-Gurion through impressive research on his work and philosophy.

Feldestein, a historian specializing in the study of Zionist ideology, also received the prize in 2007 for his research on the relationship between Israel and US Jewry under Ben-Gurion.

Feldestein will receive the prize during an official ceremony commemorating Israel’s late presidents and prime ministers next month at the President’s Residence, in the presence of the President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
