About Hebrew University of Jerusalem

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, with 22,000 students, is ranked among the top universities in the world, and is the second oldest university in Israel. Students enroll at the Rothberg International School (RIS) with both local students from diverse backgrounds and international students from over 70 countries. 

Founded in 3,000 BCE Jerusalem (pop. 750,000) is one of the oldest and most significant cities in Eastern and Western history. In  Jerusalem,  students will find the intersection of three of the world’s major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. For centuries it has been a destination for pilgrims (and tourists) to the holy sites throughout the city: The Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, the Mount of Olives, just to name a few. Learning comes to life in the monuments, museums, markets in the old city, restaurants and cafes, and events and rituals of everyday life in Jerusalem.
