On the occasion of Jerusalem Day, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem hosted hundreds of men, women and children from Jerusalem and around the country on its Mount Scopus and Edmond J. Safra campuses.
On May 17 and 18, the public enjoyed free tours and lectures in various fields led by Hebrew University faculty and staff as part of an initiative called “Journeys of the Mind.”
Events included tours of the University’s reptile and amphibian collection, its animal collection, the Botanical Garden on the Mount Scopus campus, talks on a diverse variety of topics, and more.
According to Hebrew University President Prof. Menahem Ben-Sasson, ''Jerusalem Day was a great opportunity for the public to spend a magical morning or afternoon on campus and experience the University's many scientific, architectural, botanical and artistic offerings.”
