Meet the Madrichim


The Madrichim (Social Acitivity Coordinators) are all Israeli University of Haifa students.  Most of them live on campus near our students and they are on call 24 hours a day. Every semester they prepare an extensive array of social and cultural programs for our students as well as coordinating the volunteer program. The Madrichim are here for our students with any needs or questions they may have, or just to shoot the breeze.

 Meet Our Students

Fall 2015

Tubingen University

      Why Haifa? Because I was looking for a place where I can study Jewish Studies and Islamic Studies. A place where I can combine both cultures, and where it is safe. I have been to Israel before but I knew that Haifa has an  atmosphere of multiculturalism, understanding, and of coexistence.

     What do you like the most about Haifa? Meeting people from all over the world, new friends, and the peaceful atmosphere.

      Why Haifa? I wanted to experience something else than Europe. I really liked the program and the  ourses were very interesting.  The University is filled with International Students, the city feels more liberal, and everyone can live how they want.

      What do you like to the most About Haifa? The weather is the best thing! 

       You can meet people from the all over world and I have met people from every continent
