Renowned psychosexual therapist, Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, will be receiving an honorary doctoral degree from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) on May 19, 2020, in Beer-Sheva, Israel. The ceremony will take place during the University’s 50th-anniversary celebration.

To commemorate the honor, she is establishing the Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer Endowed Scholarship for Psychology, which will fund psychology student scholarships at BGU.

Asking folks to donate to the fund, she says, “Please help. You’ll have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and you will have good sex.”

BGU President Prof. Daniel Chamovitz says, “How fitting that a woman of Dr. Ruth’s stature, who heard David Ben-Gurion announce the new State of Israel as a young woman in Israel in 1948, will receive an honorary degree from the University that bears his name seven decades later amidst a long and distinguished career.

“It is a great honor for BGU to recognize her achievements during our 50th anniversary.”
