Rothberg International School

The first program specifically for international students opened in 1956. The School for Overseas Students was formally inaugurated in 1971, and it became the Rothberg International School (RIS) in 1995 in honor of Sam Rothberg, whose vision, initiative, and drive were major factors in the school's creation and development. Today, RIS has become an international arena, attracting students from around the world. The school has an accomplished faculty, with an annual student population of more than 2,000. Hebrew University brings students from over 90 countries together in Jerusalem to share a common experience. Click here to learn more about Rothberg.
