An interview with an Israeli scientist shows that dialogue through science is still possible

Dennis Overbye of the New York Times recalls his interview with Prof. Eliezer Rabinovici of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem — and co-founder of the SESAME project in Jordan — as his most memorable of the year:

Rabinovici: “I always wanted to visit some of these other universes, just to see how things are there,” he said, but with the Sesame project “I actually got to live in a universe where Arabs, Israelis, Iranians, Pakistanis work together for the same cause for their own people, for humanity.”

For more on SESAME:


Israel BDS – building dialogue through science – aims to promote the kind of international collaboration that can lead to true understanding between people. Israel BDS stands for the free and open exchange of ideas among scientists everywhere. By reporting on the benefits of Israeli-international scientific research and the web of connections that these scientists create around the world, Israel BDS takes a vibrant approach to highlighting the global necessity of continued international scientific collaboration.
