Telescope being assembled on Einstein's lawn, before being presented, in his name, to a university in Israel. He came up to me, arms extended, and said: 'What a wonderful piece of machinery that man has made, and look at me! I never made anything with my hands.' Pictured are Zvi Gezari (center) and Albert Einstein.
