Architects: Heinz Rau, 1963; Moshe Safdie, 1985

Come and see Jerusalem architecture at its finest. The compound boasts of a modernist building designed by Heinz Rau and a later wing added by Moshe Safdie. The latter is comprised of a succession of small structures that surround inner courtyards, offering their own interpretation of traditional Jerusalem buildings. The compound serves a seminary where rabbis, cantors and educators from the Reform Movement in Israel and overseas receive training. It also houses an archaeological museum, a library, and a synagogue that is open on Sabbaths and Jewish holidays.
