71-year-old singer and actress Barbra Streisand will be presented with an honorary PhD from Hebrew University in Jerusalem when she arrives next month. She will be performing at the Israeli Presidential Conference in June, set to honor Shimon Peres’s 90th birthday. She is also scheduled to give two public concerts. These will be her first performances in the country.

Hebrew University expressed its intention to honor Streisand on Monday, explaining that it is recognizing her concern for human rights and her dedication to Israel and the Jewish people. The university’s school of Jewish studies, founded in 1984, is named after Streisand’s father, Emanuel. This will be her second honorary doctorate; the first was presented by Brandeis University.
