Zefat Academic College is a rapidly growing independent public institution of higher education in the Upper Galilee region of Israel, with 2,600 students enrolled in baccalaureate programs in Law, Health Sciences, the Humanities and Social Sciences. The College offers a 21st century academic gateway for aspiring students, with deep roots in the region. In fact, the College is a reality changer in one of the poorest regions in Israel. While we operate in a city with 40% ultra-orthodox residents, we do attract a highly diverse and multi-cultural student body. This diversity includes students who are Jewish secular, religious and ultra-orthodox, as well as new immigrants from the former USSR and Ethiopia together with Muslims, Druze, Christians and Circassians. The College is proud to be named, the most culturally diverse public institution of higher education in Israel. It is difficult to find a better definition that would describe Zefat Academic College than a miracle. In our Rosh Hashanah Newsletter we would like to share with you portions of this miracle, a dream and its realization. While I am sure you will find the stories in this Newsletter inspiring, they cannot replace visiting our campus and experiencing our unique energy and development first hand. I invite all of you to visit our College, meet our students, see our projects as they progress and witness the miracle. In the near future we will inaugurate our new website. Information about it will be available in our January Newsletter. On behalf of our entire college community, I wish you and yours a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. Hag Sameach!
