Israel is run at, and in consortium with, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

and dedication to a sound liberal arts education for which its sponsoring
institutions are known. The program accepts a maximum of 20 students from
Wesleyan University and other US colleges and universities. It runs from
mid-January to early June, and offers an ulpan (intensive Hebrew language

they will receive the maximum intellectual benefit.
