About

Founded in Sydney in May 1936 by Ruby Rich (later Ruby Rich-Schalit MBE), the Australian Friends of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was established for the benefit of the Hebrew University. Our aims and objectives are:

  • To bring the name of the Hebrew University to the fore, raising awareness within the Jewish and general Australian community of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and its academic and research excellence.

  • To raise funds and encourage bequests in support of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, both for specific projects and for the general purposes of the University.

  • To provide a medium for the exchange of information and literature between Australia and The Hebrew Univeristy of Jerusalem.

  • To encourage and assist Australian students wishing to undertake study at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
