Your home away from home on campus at Hebrew U

<div class="masa-blog-title">Your home away from home on campus at Hebrew U</div>

By Yonni at Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Staying at Hebrew University means your home away from home could be on one of three campuses in Jerusalem:
  1. Mt. Scopus (Har Ha’tzofim)
  2. Givat Ram, and
  3. Hadassah Ein Karem.
So what’s the difference?

For Applicants

For Applicants

Spending five to twelve months interning, volunteering, or studying abroad is a big commitment. Before you select your program and apply for a Masa Israel grant or scholarship , it’s important that you learn as much as you can about where you’re going and what to expect – both before you go and after you return.
Want to get a feel for what your Israel experience could be? Let us put you in touch with one of our thousands of alumni who can tell you what it's really like.
