On newly leveled land JCT celebrated the exciting groundbreaking of the new Tal Campus. 13 dunams, 4 buildings, 3 faculties: Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Life and Health Sciences, faculty of Management as well as a cafeteria and dormatories. The ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Jerusalem Moshe Leon, the President of the Center Academic Lev Prof. Chaim Sukenik, CEO of the Jerusalem ministry Netanel Izak, Friends of Lev Academic Center, and donors.
The new campus promises the most innovative equipment available to train our students, as well as dedicated professors, all made available with the introduction of new academic tracks alongside our existing options.
We believe that the new campus will mean that the number of female students, which currently stands at about 2,000, will double. The Tal campus promises to be an academic attraction for young women from all over the country seeking to acquire a degree in the management and high-tech health professions at a level of excellence, and in a religious environment.
The campus is an essential factor in the implementation of the state plan for the integration of the ultra-orthodox population in academia and employment, and will significantly strengthen Jerusalem and Israel's economy.
The president of the Lev Academic Center, Professor Chaim Sukenik, addressed our guests saying, "Just as the Jewish people came out of Egypt and recognized that they were taking the first step towards creating a nation that would accept the Torah, so we stand here today at the Lev Academic Center, in the period between Jerusalem Day and Shavuot, with a deep awareness of opportunities and obligations the great physical and spiritual challenges that lie ahead of us. We will continue to work tirelessly to contribute our part by creating exciting programs and recruiting outstanding faculty members in order to establish the largest and best women's campus in Israel.”
