Community Outreach

Academic Projects, Social Involvment and More…

Since its inception, Bar-Ilan’s founders strived to involve it in every aspect of the State of Israel’s daily life, alongside its role as an educational and research institute. In keeping with this spirit, the university’s founding charter states that it is intended to serve as a “beacon of light” that will distribute higher learning and Jewish values among Jewish youth in Israel and around the world. And Bar-Ilan is indeed extremely involved in the Israeli society and community.
