Mishpatim, the Hebrew University Law Review, is the first and leading law review published by the Faculty of Law at the Hebrew Univeristy and one of the most important academic publications in Israel. The first academic law review in Israel, Mishpatim was first established by retired president of Supreme Court Aharon Barak in 1968. Since its establishment, Mishpatim has published 44 volumes including articles, notes and book reviews authored by a diverse group of legal scholars.
Mishpatim is the only solely student-administered law review in Israel. All articles undergo a thorough peer review process as well as the editorial board’s careful review and editing. Although it is guided by a Board of Directors composed of alumni, faculty, and independent directors, all editorial decisions and content are directed by the Editorial Board and Editors, who are selected through a competitive admissions process from the Faculty classes.

Established in 1965, the Israel-America Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Israel) is a voluntary organization of companies and individuals dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of two-way trade and investment between Israel and the U.S. The U.S. Ambassador to Israel serves as Honorary Chairman of AmCham.
The Israel-Asia Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1984 with the mission to encourage, support, and facilitate trade and business relations between Israel and Asia. The Chamber promotes productive dialogue and mutual cooperation to strengthen ties between the regions.
The Chamber was founded by: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor (Ministry of Economy), The Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute, The Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce, and The Kibbutzim’ Industries Association.
At present, the Chamber consists of ten sub-chambers and also includes three desks and five committees.
The Institute for the Advancement of Education in Jaffa (The Jaffa Institute) was established in 1982 as a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to create a new reality for thousands of underprivileged Israeli children from Jaffa, South Tel Aviv and Bat Yam.
These children live in poverty stricken neighborhoods where the majority of parents and caregivers are unemployed. Physically and emotionally undernourished, these children are too often suffering from neglect and/or abuse. Violence, crime, and poverty are the norm and what these children can expect for their futures, unless intervention is taken.
Each of the Jaffa Institute’s centers offer a holistic therapeutic approach, providing tools to help each child to develop and flourish, while supporting the child’s family and community with a wide range of programs and services.
The Jaffa Institute works closely with Ministry of Welfare officials to target, provide assistance, and assess the progress of those in need within our service areas.
