Postponement of the Academic Year Opening to the 5th of November

An update from the TAU rector, Prof. Mark Shtaif

12 October 2023

Dear members of the TAU community,


Due to the security situation in the country, the military draft, and the great distress experienced by many of our colleagues, the university administration has decided to postpone the opening of the academic year to Nov. 5 2023. Similar decisions have been made in other institutions as well.


We will continue to update you regarding other aspects of the academic schedule according to developments on the ground.

We would like to emphasize the university's commitment to assisting the victims of this week’s events and to members called for military duty. Tel Aviv University will do all we can to help you succeed in your studies when you are able to return to campus.


Special consideration will be given to the constraints and sensitivities of the various groups, and support systems will be activated for those who need them.


Our hearts are with the residents of the south and their dear ones, as well as with the security forces, to which many of our colleagues are enlisted during this period.


I wish for calmer days for all of us.


Prof. Mark Shtaif, Rector
