From it's founding in 1925, the Hebrew University and Winnipeg have been linked, when Winnipeg’s own Max Steinkopf attended the official opening in Israel. In 1948, the Winnipeg Chapter of the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University was formed and has been thriving ever since. Over 100 Winnipeg students have attended the Rothberg International School describing it as "being the experience of a lifetime".
