Two Israeli universities reported sharp rises in the number of foreign students in summer programs. The University of Haifa announced a 76 percent increase over last year in enrollment for its two summer Hebrew-language programs, and Jerusalem’s Hebrew University reported an increase of 45 percent. The figures, reported in the Jerusalem Post, are the highest since travel to Israel dropped dramatically after the start of the Palestinian intifada in the fall of 2000.
