The groundbreaking filmmaker Quentin Tarantino earned an honorary degree — “Doctor Philosophiae Honoris Causa” — from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem during the 85th Board of Governors meeting.

After marrying Israeli singer and model Daniella Pick in 2018, Tarantino divides his time between Tel Aviv and Hollywood.

The university acknowledged Tarantino’s “deep links to Israel through his wife Danielle, as well as his decision to make Israel his second home.”

Academy Award-winning Tarantino received the degree “In recognition of his critically acclaimed cinematic success as a writer, director, and actor; honoring his ten blockbuster movies and numerous Academy Awards, BAFTA Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and the Palme d’Or award; in admiration of the scope of his artistic vision, creating films that span genres, historical periods, and themes; and in tribute to his strong ties to Israel through his wife Daniella, and for making Israel his second home.”

The Hebrew University confers honorary degrees upon individuals who have distinguished themselves through academic or creative achievement, who have rendered exemplary service to the university, or whose activities have been of significant benefit to humanity, the State of Israel, or the Jewish people. The 2022 recipients got their degrees along with 287 Harvard University Ph.D. candidates.
