Feinbrun-Naomi - still image

Botanist Naomi Feinbrun, one of the first women professors at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, conducted pioneering research of the flora of Israel and the Middle East until her death at the age of ninety-one. Her memory lives on in the Astragalus feinbruniae and other plants named in her honor by colleagues in Israel and abroad.
