About Bar-Ilan University
Bar-Ilan University is the world’s leading institute of higher learning, which provides an environment for academic excellence to Jews of every level of observance, as well as the community at large.
Firmly committed to the Jewish people, studies and culture, the University has also achieved an international reputation in the sciences and humanities. Bar-Ilan is fast becoming one of Israel’s scientific incubators, and is actively involved in technology transfer and commercialization.
Although home to the largest student body in the state, the University has succeeded in providing a sense of personal attention and a family-like atmosphere to students and faculty alike. Since the institution’s inception in 1955, this nurturing community has proven to be the right formula for molding leaders in every field of human endeavor.
