The WUJS Institute adult study program is moving from its longtime home in Arad to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
The institute, a study-internship program that since 2006 has been under the auspices of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization, will open in the new locations on Sept. 1. The 50 students registered for the fall semester have agreed to participate at the new sites.
The move was precipitated by a Jewish Agency announcement that it would close the absorption center in Arad, a southern Israeli city 18 miles from Beersheba. The center has provided housing and classroom space for the program for 50 years.
