Har Hatzofim (Mount Scopus) Center, Jerusalem

הר הצופים תצפיות נוף

Mount Scopus, or Har Hatzofim, is without a doubt one of the most beautiful lookout points in Jerusalem. It’s the highest spot in the city at a height of 850 meters above sea level. Its name “tzofim” refers to the fact that from here you can “watch” the city.

 

 

In 1925 the Hebrew University was established on the mountain. By 1950 it became a major educational institution for research and teaching. The school has departments of humanities, science, medicine, education and agriculture. The University also has a national library, a university press and a center for adult education. Hadassah Hospital was established here in 1939.

 

 

In the twenty years between the War of Independence in 1948 and the Six Day War in 1967, Mount Scopus became an isolated Israeli island surrounded by Arabs. It became very difficult to get to the university and the hospital. During these years, an additional university campus was established at Givat Ram. The hospital opened another branch in Ein Kerem.


The view alone makes this place well worth a visit.

 

 

הר הצופים, הוא המקום הגבוהה ביותר בירושלים, גובהו כ - 850 מטר מעל פני המים והבאים לירושלים מהצפון ראו ממנו לראשונה את העיר ואת בית המקדש. ומכאן שמו "צופים". על ההר נבנו בשנות ה - 40 - האוניברסיטה העיברית [1925] ובית החולים הדסה [1939] במשך כ - 20 שנה בין מלחמת השחרור [1948] לבין מלחמת ששת הימים [1967] בה נכבשה ירושלים המזרחית, ההר היה אי ישראלי המוקף בערבים והגישה אליו היתה קשה עד בלתי אפשרית. בשנים אלו נבנה קמפוס נוסף לאונברסיטה בגבעת רם וסניף נוסף לבית חולים הדסה מעל שכונת "עין כרם" [כיום סניף זה הוא בית החולים הגדול ביותר בארץ]. אך להר הצופים עולים כדי להנות ממבחר תצפיות נוף מרהיבות על ירושלים, הר הבית, העיר העתיקה ובצד השני מזרחה על מדבר יהודה וים המלח!! ללא ספק אחד ממקומות התצפית היפים ביותר בירושלים.
