Prof. Israel Aumann from Jerusalem won 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics for his contribution to game theory. “Prize is for all of Israeli science.” ______________________________ SUMMARY OF EDITORIALS FROM THE HEBREW PRESS Hatzofeh discusses the war on traffic accidents and urges that the traffic police be given greater resources. Yediot Ahronot hails Hebrew University Prof. Robert J. Aumann, winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics. Yediot Ahronot, in its second editorial, says that the eve of Yom Kippur is an appropriate time for the rabbinical, religious and educational establishments to ask themselves, “How is it that most of today’s youth have never been in a synagogue in Israel and do not know even the slightest thing about Judaism and its roots?” Yediot Ahronot, in its third editorial, notes that less than half of Israel’s current residents were here 32 years ago during the outbreak of the 1973 Yom Kippur War and points out that an IDF commander who led troops in some of the war’s bloodiest battles now leads both the country and the struggle for peace.
