021 The Historical Mount Scopus Campus

Meeting place: Avigdor HaMeiri Square on Mount Scopus, next to the main entrance to the campus

A tour among the first buildings built on the Mount Scopus campus – Gray Hill House, the Archaeology Building (the Mensa), the National Library and Amphitheater, the Cave of Nicanor and the Botanical Garden. The tour will recount the story behind the founding of Hebrew University on Mount Scopus and the period during which it was effectively cut off from West Jerusalem for nearly two decades, from 1948 to 1967. The tour, led by the historian Shmuel Tal, will be intertwined with his personal memories as a soldier and policeman stationed on the mount in 1965.

  • Entry to the campus is contingent on presenting a Green Pass.
