Culture & Recreation

The Hebrew University's four campuses are home to many social, cultural, artistic and spiritual opportunities. Students can take part in stimulating lectures and seminars, diverse social, cultural and religious activities, and invigorating athletic and recreational pursuits. Outside the classroom there are many things to do — from the Musicology Department's Monday Afternoon Concert Series to the Mt. Scopus Botanical Gardens — and many opportunities for Israeli and international students to get to know each other. Information about lectures, conferences, concerts and exhibitions can be found on the university's various Events Calendars; many of these are open to the general public. The Students Union and Hillel organize many events throughout the year.

Off-campus, Jerusalem is a thriving city and modern metropolis, rich in art galleries and museums, theaters and concert halls, restaurants and cafes, pubs and dance clubs. The city's diverse neighborhoods are home to a variety of restaurants with cuisine representing every region of the world. Throughout the year, the city hosts festivals, exhibitions, international conferences and sports competitions. The Municipality of Jerusalem's Events and Tourism pages, and the Go Jerusalem website, offer a wealth of information about activities in the city.
