Co-sponsored by UW-Madison, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJ) program in Jerusalem, Israel, offers students an opportunity to live and study in Jerusalem, one of the most important religious and historic cities in the world and a major center of Middle East politics. Participants join other international students at HUJ's Rothberg International School in taking courses in English or Hebrew and experiencing the language and culture of Israel firsthand.

Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is well known for its abundant historical and holy sites and fascinating tourist attractions. A city sacred to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Jerusalem is a melding of past and present, of ancient roots and modern innovations. In addition, this thriving metropolis is rich in art galleries and museums, theaters and concert halls, restaurants and cafes, pubs and dance clubs. Exciting festivals, exhibitions, international conferences, sports competitions and many other special events are held throughout the year.
