During the month of Ramadan, which is observed from April 2nd to May 1st, studies at the University will continue as usual. During this month, observant Muslims fast daily, from early morning hours until approximately 7:15 pm. There are also family gatherings in the evening ("Iftar").

A Letter To Students | Second Semester Studies 2022

20 February, 2022


Dear Hebrew University students,

The Second Semester will open on Sunday, March 6, 2022, and I wish you much success.

Teaching will take place in classrooms and laboratories (distance learning will take place for only a few designated courses). In most courses, the lessons will be filmed and will be available for viewing after the lesson, to help those who are unable to attend the lesson for a justifiable reason, and to enable further study for all students.
