Jewish Professor Wins Nobel Prize in Physics

Professor Francois Baron Englert (80) shared a Nobel prize in physics with Professor Peter Higgs of Britain, for their discovery of the Higgs mechanism.

Englert is a Belgium Jew and Holocaust survivor.

Englert is Professor emeritus at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) where he is member of the Service de Physique Théorique. He is also a Sackler Professor by Special Appointment in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Tel-Aviv University and a member of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University in California.

More than 20 percent of the 800 Nobel Prize winners so far have been Jewish although Jews represent only 0.2 of the world’s population.

    Doesn't the world realize why Jews are always recipient of Nobel prizes. It's our culture and the Talmud. I didn't say Torah. I say Talmud because Talmud is the precursor of Jewish education. I am not a religious person. As a matter of fact I am anti organized religion in any form.

  2. Seagull LivingStone says:

    i wonder why none of these great minds can find the cure to antisemitism and hate in the world

  3. Anonymous says:

    Even if you are anti organized religion you and I are free to pray to G-d in our own language outside the shull. Hashem 'likes' when we speak to Him. All the best

  4. Alex Drobny says:

    Notice no Arabs or Muslims getting Nobel prizes:I guess they don't give. These prizes for the amount of body bags you give the world

  5. Fred Goldschmidt says:

    My son Nathan wrote over 300 physics papers during post grad work in Fermi National Accelerator Lab, and in SERN Switzerland to support the discovery of the Higgs Particle. He is now at U of P studying Medical Phisics. We are so proud of our children.

  6. Lenny Murphy says:

    Nathan was a good kid, I remember him being in Troop 1 and befriending him. Good to know he's been very successful in his adult life. Way better then baby sitting inmates like I do :-)

    For Seagull Livingstone;  Perhaps the very excellence and creativeness of our people  causes enraging envy and hatred…which of course cannot be admitted,  so the Jew haters have to invent evil intent on us to justify their own debased emotions???

  9. Bravo for work well done

  10. Bravo for work well done

  11. Hal Tipper says:

    because the majority of the world does not want a cure.. it is easier to project the responsibility for their own suffering on a convenient scapegoat..
    it has to be a product of our own conclusions and choice

  12. You have a lot to be proud of ,Nathan is a remarkable person,please keep us informed of his progress ,too bad we can't send his progress to that professor at Cum. Cty Coll who rejected his science fair project,it was obvious then and now that the Prof., was in over his head..

  13. Fred Goldschmidt says:

    Arthur Knudsen Thank you for your kind words. I will forward them to Nate.

  14. good question. .. and the answers are not that great…

  15. ….because Faith is backed by the POWER OF LOVE…Not by "pleasing" or "displeasing", men.
