About

The Diversity and Coexistence program at Hebrew University offers a unique opportunity for undergraduates to explore the intersections between identity, religion, community, nationalism and diversity in the city of coexistence — Jerusalem. Students engage in an interdisciplinary study of Israel’s approach to pluralism and social cohesion. Beyond the classroom the Alliance introduces students to Israelis representing a variety of religious, ethnic and sexual identities, as well as different political and socio-economic backgrounds.
