February News and Updates from AFRU

Dear Friends, Supporters, Parents, and Alumni,

Please enjoy this month’s newsletter. It has been a very busy time with many activities taking place in the US and Israel.  

Given the current climate on US campuses, I want to remind everyone that The Raphael Recanati International School at Reichman University is a great option for young people looking to start their university experience or continue on to their graduate degrees.

Now more than ever, Jewish families are facing an important decision as they select a college where their child will be in a safe and positive environment. Reichman University provides this along with an outstanding academic education. Here are some highlights:

  • Our programs are completely in English.

  • Reichman University students graduate with a BA or BSc in just three years.

  • This vibrant learning environment is enhanced by 2,000 classmates who come to Reichman University from 90 countries around the world, with over 300 lone soldiers studying for full degrees.

  • A Reichman University degree opens doors. Reichman University graduates are highly sought after in the job market and are accepted into top universities for MA and PhD degrees worldwide.

  • Reichman University offers a large array of extracurricular activities including numerous clubs, community service opportunities, JLIC monthly Shabbat dinners, and trips among others.

  • Reichman University placed number one in student satisfaction in quality teaching for four consecutive years in a nationwide survey conducted by the Israel Council of Higher Education.

  • RRIS staff provides a “safety net” for international students, aiding them to acclimate to their new environment in Israel.

  • First year students are assigned a “peer counselor”, a veteran Israeli student who helps them navigate through their first year.

  • Reichman University is Israel's first private university.

  • Reichman University has more than 120 exchange programs with leading universities from around the world.

  • Reichman University is proud to present its dormitory complex with 750 new, high-quality, fully equipped residential units in the three 13-story buildings located on the beautiful Reichman University campus.
