About the project
The Jerusalem College of Technology was founded by Professor Ze’ev Lev (William Low) in 1969 and has grown into a major academic institution. The college offers studies in high-tech engineering, industrial management, life and health sciences and Judaic studies. By 2005, the college had an enrollment of approximately 2,000 students and a faculty of more than 150 professors, instructors and research scientists. The college also hosts the Business Ethics Center of Jerusalem, which works to encourage high standards of business integrity and economic honesty through creating an awareness of Jewish ethical teachings. The college’s campus is located on a hill near the Bayit Vegan neighborhood that the city designated for use by several national religious institutions. The Jerusalem Foundation has supported student scholarships, which require students to perform community service work, and publications of the Business Ethics Center.
