A U.S. university reversed an earlier decision to deny academic credit to students planning to study next semester at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Officials with the Israeli Consulate in New York said George Washington University’s policy came in response to the U.S. State Department warning against travel to Israel, but after the president of the Washington school met with an Israeli ambassador, he decided to approve the credit as long as students agreed not to hold the university liable should they be harmed in Jerusalem.
