Presented by Dr. David Dalin
Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014 • 4-5:30 p.m.
Although Jews comprise less than 2% of the U.S. population, American Jews constitute 20% of all Nobel Prize laureates. In the six fields for which it is given, Jews have been disproportionately represented among the recipients of the Nobel Prize. Fifty percent of the American Nobel Prize Recipients in Economics have been Jewish.
Presented by Dr. David Dalin, we will discuss the lives and contributions of American Jewish Nobel Prize laureates: Rosalyn Yalow, the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Medicine, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize recipients in Economics, Saul Bellow, the first American Jew to receive the Nobel Prize in literature, Henry Kissinger and Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize laureates, and Albert A. Michelson, acclaimed by many as the “Einstein of America,” the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1907 and the first American Jewish Nobel Prize Laureate.JCC Members
