The Department's High School Project

Started in 2008, the high school project is one of our major contributions to the community and is an example of the cooperative spirit between students and faculty in our department. This project aims to interest and teach Israeli High School students about Japanese and Chinese culture, history, language through interactive lectures, workshops, and special activities given by outstanding students from the Department of Asian Studies. Thousands of high school students in Jerusalem have taken part in the project. The project is academically supervised by Dr. Nissim Otmazgin and Dr. Orna Naftali of the Department of Asian Studies.
