Bar-Ilan University President Rabbi Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz was conferred a state honor by the President of the Republic of Hungary János Áder this past week.

The Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of Hungary, the state’s second highest honor, was presented to Hershkowitz for his "manifold and committed activities to strengthen Hungarian-Israeli academic and social relations" by the Deputy Prime Minister of Hungary Zsolt Semjén, in a ceremony at the Parliament Building in Budapest.

"As the President of Bar-Ilan University, Prof. Hershkowitz is working towards the establishment of high-level scientific and social relations between the homeland of his parents and grandparents, and Israel," according to the citation read at the ceremony, which commended his role in the establishment of the Hungarian-Israeli Scientific Society, which seeks to create a professional and cultural forum for Israeli researchers of Hungarian decent.
