David H. Levy's Evening Stars: Dr. David Levy-Shakespeare
September 2010: A journey in education concludes, but the journey of learning continues.
July 26, 2010
As my wife, Wendee, and I enjoyed the Olympic hockey final February 28, the Senate of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem formally approved my doctoral thesis. With relief, we learned that I am now officially a Doctor of Philosophy. This process brings a close to my formal education, which has lasted, on-and-off, for 58 years.
