Welcome to the Canadian Friends of Jerusalem College of Technology
ADVANCING JEWISH VALUES & TECHNOLOGY FOR ISRAEL’S FUTURE
The Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) – Lev Academic Center was founded in 1969 and is today one of Israel’s major academic institutions with over 4500 students on three campuses. It is fully accredited by Israel’s Council of Higher Education and specializes in high-tech engineering, industrial management and life and health sciences. JCT’s mission is to produce leaders who are strongly committed to Israel, Jewish values, to our People and to mankind.
The Jerusalem College of Technology is committed to Israel’s continued growth and expansion, by providing solutions to Israel’s academic, economic and social needs.
“The institute I envision has as its raison d’etre to educate students who see the synthesis of Jewish values and a profession as their way of life: to provide manpower for Israel’s developing high-tech industry, who will establish industries of their own and to produce industrial leaders strongly committed to Israel and the betterment of the Jewish people and the world.” – Professor Ze’ev Lev, Founder of JCT
In addition to educating Israel’s most academically qualified students, JCT also enables diverse segments of society to become productive members of Israel’s workforce, including many who would otherwise not have the opportunity to pursue academic studies. Over 17% of our students come from the periphery and 20% arenew immigrants. Our “Education for Ethiopians” with 138 students (including 64 women) and 120 graduates and the Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) programs with over 1700 students, provide customized remedial training, enabling adults with only a grade-school education to become college-competent in 16 months. Advanced engineering programs for women are another example of JCT’s unique academic offerings.
Your generosity will directly impact the lives of JCT’s students
