Visit from German Students

Students from the University of Applied Sciences in Fulda, spent a day at the Lev campus

A group of German students from the University of Applied Sciences in Fulda, accompanied by a few faculty members, are visiting Israel this week to learn about the country and its entrepreneurial culture.  Joint activities between JCT and Fulda have been going on for nearly a decade and include student exchanges, mutual faculty visits and research collaboration.  The group spent a day on the JCT Lev campus listening to lectures on the unique mission of JCT, entrepreneurship in Israel and Israel’s history and its populations.  Their visit included a tour of the bet midrash and a talk with Rav Rimon about the centrality of Torah study in Jewish culture and in the mission of JCT.  This was followed by a visit to some of the startups housed on campus founded by students and graduates.  After lunch the day continued with a talk from Lev-Tech staff on their hackathons and other activities designed to foster entrepreneurial thinking among students and to provide them with the necessary skills to convert those ideas into entrepreneurial ventures.  This was followed by a Q&A session in which the visiting German students inquired further about what they had learned and observed over the course of the day.
