The Albert Einstein Foundation: Honouring 100 years of his Theory of Relativity


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world."

It has been over 100 years since Albert Einstein created the General Theory of Relativity. To celebrate this historic milestone, the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University has embarked on a global project to honour the life and legacy of Albert Einstein and to identify and inspire the next generation of brilliant minds on the planet.
