President Reuven Rivlin receives honorary doctorate at Bar-Ilan University

The university also bestowed honors to former IDF chief of staff Benjamin Gantz and Yehoram Gaon

At a ceremony marking 60 years of achievement on Monday night, Bar-Ilan University awarded an honorary doctorate to Israel's 10th president, Reuven Rivlin, and other prominent Israeli and world servants.

The university chose to bestow an honorary doctorate to President Rivlin in tribute to his longstanding efforts to strengthen Israel's standing as the nation of the Jewish people as well as his efforts to cultivate its sovereign symbols, including Jerusalem as its capital.

Speaking at the ceremony on behalf of all the doctorate recipients, Rivlin said, "if we do not create a process whereby critical thinking, skepticism and rebellion will flourish alongside consensus and majority opinion, we will sin against the future of our society."
