Seven years after the cornerstone was laid, The Hebrew University is opened on Mt. Scopus on April 1, 1925. The University’s first Chancellor is Judah Magnes. Since Jordan controlled East Jerusalem after the 1948 war ended, Hebrew University temporarily moved its campus to Givat Ram. After the 1967 war, two campuses existed. It is ranked among the top sixty universities in the world.
