The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, founded in 1925, is Israel’s first university. It is a comprehensive institution that offers learning and research comparable to the world’s greatest universities. The university has close to 1,000 senior faculty members who teach about 18,000 Israeli and foreign students at five locations: Mount Scopus, the Edmond J. Safra Campus and Ein Kerem, all in Jerusalem, and at Rehovot and Beit Dagan. It is Israel’s largest university in terms of total revenue. It is awarded nearly one-third of all competitive research grants in Israel, and its $120 million annual research budget is the largest in the country.
