Mount Scopus


Mount Scopus
(Har Hatzofim)
   A hill in Jerusalem; site of the first campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which was cut off from Jewish Jerusalem during the War of Independence (1948—49) but remained under Israel's control. From 1948 to 1967, the enclave was held by a small contingent of Israelis who were periodically relieved by convoys under United Nations escort. In the Six-Day War (1967), Israel recaptured the surrounding territory, and the Hebrew University began to rebuild and expand its facilities on Mount Scopus.
