(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Professor Albert Einstein has written a special foreword to the Hebrew edition of his work, “The General and Specific Relativity Theory,” which is being published in Tel-Aviv by the publishing house, Dibur. The book has been translated into Hebrew by Dr. J. Greenberg.

Professor Einstein in his foreword, writes: “The appearance of my book in the language of our fathers fills me with special joy. It is a sign of the transformation which has taken place in our language so that its use is no longer restricted to expressing the affairs of our people to our people, but that it is now able to embrace everything that interests human beings. It constitutes an important factor in our striving towards cultural independence.”
