Almost 50 years ago, when studying for a teaching license in mathematics and physics at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, I participated in the compulsory course: "The Educational Meaning of Science Teaching". The lecturer was the late Prof. Yeshayahu Leibowitz, one of the greatest Jewish scholars of the 20th century. He was both a scientist and a philosopher, a professor of biochemistry, organic chemistry and neurophysiology at the Hebrew University, a Kantian philosopher, the writer of enormous amount of scientific and philosophical articles and books, written from his unique political and religious point of view, as an Ultra-Orthodox Jew who belonged to the "hard core" left in Israel. Leibowitz was also one of the editors of the Hebrew Encyclopedia, and starting in volume 17 – its sole main editor. Rumors about his involvement claimed that in addition to serving as the main editor of the whole Encyclopedia, the main editor of natural sciences department, and the editor of the chemistry, biology and medicine sections, but also contributed hundreds of encyclopedic entries to various other sections, such as religion, bible, philosophy, history and more.
