HebrewU’s core alumni association brings together thousands of our alumni from all over the world, united by support of the university’s mission and purpose. Our alumni work together to ensure HebrewU’s continued success as a leading university and a major cultural and intellectual force in Israel for years to come. The organization also collaborates with regional alumni groups to facilitate networking opportunities for our alumni abroad.
