In celebration of Brandeis University's 75th Anniversary, the 
Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University presents "The Jacob Hiatt Institute in Jerusalem, 1961-1983." This online exhibition illuminates the history and enduring legacy of Brandeis University's innovative study abroad program, and takes viewers inside the student experience with photos, videos and memories shared by program alumni.

You can even hop in our time machine and experience the Hiatt Institute together with the 1967 cohort, thanks to a rare film discovered in the Brandeis archives while conducting research for the exhibition.
