A $10 million Israeli equivalent of the Nobel Prize for outstanding achievements in the field of science anywhere in the world was recently enacted into law by the Knesset following a heated debate. Though known as the Wolf Fund, the prize money was contributed by an anonymous Jewish donor. Education Minister Aharon Yadlin said he supported the bill because the donor said that if Israel would not endorse it he would set up the fund in another country.
