1:30 PM-4:30 PM Tour of Mt. Scopus: In Pursuit of the Intellectual Zionist Project
Mt. Scopus looks out over thousands of years of Jewish history, from ancient archeology to current events, with Jerusalem on one side and the Judean desert and the Dead Sea on the other. The site also houses the first buildings of the Hebrew University as well as the earliest long-term home of the National Library. We will walk in the footsteps of those who envisioned a new national cultural center for the Jewish people upon its return to the Land of Israel. We will hear the stories which motivated these institutions in the decades prior to the War of Independence and upon the return to the mountain after the Six Day War, when the new campus was constructed.
