Welcome to Hebrew University’s Rothberg International School!Here’s a look at life during our summer and special programs.
In addition to organizing fun and memorable experiences, we will also help you get used to life in Israel and on the Hebrew University campus, so don’t hesitate to ask your madrich about transportation, food, events – anything at all! The madrich is a student at Hebrew University too, so please say “shalom” between classes, in the dorms, and around Jerusalem. Contact your madrich now!
EventsWe enjoy working hard to offer you a wide variety of events to complement your academic experience.
Weekend TripsOur optional weekend trips will take you all over Israel, from north to south, showing you the country the best way possible – on your feet! We will hike through the country, experiencing the diverse terrain and beautiful views Israel has to offer.
Short TripsOur shorter trips are also optional. They vary from visits to a boutique cider factory and an Israeli Defense Forces base to tours of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and the Jerusalem Start-Up Hub!
ActivitiesCheck our current calendar of optional activities. An email list of special events and activities, both on- and off-campus, will go out to you every week. These emails are specific to your program, so you can be assured that they will complement your studies in a unique way.
CultureOnce a week, the Office of Student Life (OSL) offers evening events on Israeli society, which will help you become familiar with the different cultures, foods, people, and opinions we have in Israel! Previous programs have included visits from high-level experts such as members of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and an Israeli Defense Forces media and PR representative, as well as volunteers from a Modern Orthodox LGBTQ group.
