Congratulations to all the winners of the JewishPress.com raffle at The Event
Sweden took a break from anti-Semitism Tuesday with the awarding of the Nobel Prize in chemistry to Israel-Americans Aryeh Warshel and Michael Levitt, who were named last month as prize winners “for the development of multi-scale models for complex chemical systems.”
The two men and co-winner Martin Karplus each received $1 million from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
Warshel was born on a kibbutz in Israel, served in the IDF as an officer and has been a professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles for more than 40 years.
Levitt was born in South Africa and moved to Israel in 1979 before leaving for the United States. He studied and worked in Israel, where his sons live.
