Hillel Foundations Decide to Establish Foundation at Haifa Technion

Download PDF for this date

Plans to initiate a Hillel campus program at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa were announced here today by the B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations. The program will go into operation February 1 to serve the school’s more than 2,400 undergraduate and graduate student body.

The new Hillel Foundation will be the second in Israel. A Hillel Foundation has been on the campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem for 11 years. Directing the new program at the Technion will be Dr. Jack J. Cohen, who took up residence earlier this month in Jerusalem as director of Hillel activities in Israel. He will supervise the Hillel programs at both the Hebrew University and the Technion.
