The Hebrew University was founded here in 1925, and from 1948 to 1967 it was an Israeli enclave in Jordan. After 1967 the University and its hospital were refounded and now dominate the skyline. Stunning views.

Unlike East Jerusalem, Mount Scopus Jerusalem was held by Israel during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War Arab-Israeli, and existed as an exclave of Israel inside Jordanian territory. Israeli sovereignty over Mt. Scopus is internationally recognized. Today, Mount Scopus lies inside Israel's official borders for the city of Jerusalem.
Mount Scopus name is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word "harsofim" (to look over), as it is one of the few places from which can be seen both The Dead Sea and the Dome of the Rock.
