Jerusalem


From the hilltop of the Mount Scopus campus, the incredible panorama of Jerusalem unfolds. In the Talmud it says: "Of the ten measures of beauty allotted to the world, nine were given to Jerusalem." Medieval maps show Jerusalem as the heart of the world. Astonishingly, it remains there: the seam line where West meets East, and where Judaism, Christianity and Islam join and intercross.


Community


The vibrant Mount Scopus campus offers ample opportunities outside the classroom for international students to interact with one another and to encounter their Israeli peers. Students can take advantage of stimulating lectures and seminars; diverse social, cultural and religious activities; invigorating athletic and recreational pursuits, and so much more.
