About Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Year Founded: 1955

Overseas students have been coming to the Hebrew University since its opening in 1925. In 1955 the first organized group of 22 American students arrived for a full year of accredited study. This laid the groundwork for the One Year Program (today called the Undergraduate Study Abroad Program) and eventually its home, the School for Overseas Students, which was formally inaugurated in 1971. On its 10th anniversary, the School was dedicated in honor of Sam Rothberg, whose vision, initiative and drive were major factors in its creation and development.

Today the School has become an international arena, attracting students from around the world. The Rothberg International Schoolhas a full-fledged faculty, with an annual student population of more than 3,000 students, who converge here to find intellectual challenge, religious bonds, political analysis and cultural activity. In the hallways of the School you can hear English spoken in the accents of New York, New England and the Deep South, of Britain, Australia and South Africa. You can hear students talking in Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, Polish, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Korean and Japanese. The Hebrew University brings all these students, from over 60 countries, together in Jerusalem to share a common experience in Hebrew their new common language.
