Fine & Performing Arts

Jerusalem is home to an emerging arts scene and is a lively cultural center where diverse traditions find their expression in a variety of art forms. Through cooperation with Israel’s top art institutes, Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School (RIS) has developed unique programs in the fields of dance, music, and art. These programs combine artistic training and techniques with academic exposure to Israel’s challenging social, historical, and cultural environment.
