A word from our president


Prof. Yoseph A.Mekori, MD

President, Tel-Hai College

Tel-Hai College is the leading public academic college in Israel and an engine of change for the educational, economic and social development of the Upper Galilee. Since becoming an independent academic institution in 1996, Tel-Hai’s innovative curriculum, diverse student life and pluralistic atmosphere, and growing reputation for academic excellence have attracted students from across the country to join in building our unique community of learning, and gained the attention of scholars and researchers around the world.

Tel-Hai strives for the best where it is needed most – doing our utmost to serve the people of the northern periphery of Israel and tap into the region’s extraordinary potential. We believe we can see the future from here, and that we are building it every day in both the classroom and the community.

We invite you to explore that work with us by learning more about our courses, our faculty and our wonderful students, as well as our passion to make the Galilee a place where more Tel-Hai graduates – and more Israelis – will want to live, work and make their home.
