|About the university||The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was founded in 1918, 30 years before the state of Israel itself was established. It is the second oldest institution in the country, and is known as HUJI.
It counts Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud among the members of its first Board of Governors, and has continued to have a close relationship with some brilliant minds, counting seven Nobel Prize winners among its faculty and alumni.
In addition to its academic stars, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has produced a string of famous faces. Among its alumni are four Israeli presidents, including the incumbant Reuven Rivlin; three prime ministers of Israel; Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman; and former CEO of electronics giant Hewlett-Packard Léo Apotheker.
|Location overview||As Lonely Planet aptly describes;
‘A repository of sacred buildings and relics, Jerusalem is a place where the oft-abused descriptor 'living history' really does apply – here you can walk in the footsteps of prophets, pray in buildings constructed by order of caliphs and kings, and overnight in hospices where Crusaders and cardinals have slumbered. The soundtrack is of church bells, the muezzin's call and the shofar (ram's horn), and the streets smell of everything from church incense to the heady aromas of the spice souq (market). It's a sensory and spiritual experience unlike any other.
There's plenty to see outside the Old City, too, including the hugely impressive Israel Museum and the powerful Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. They, together with the Old City's manifest attractions, make Jerusalem the number-one tourist destination in Israel for very good reason.’
