MIT - the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - and the Technion - the Israel Institute of Technology are two institutions with more in common than their names: they attract some of the finest students and faculty in the world, explore cutting-edge research in science and technology, and create environments focused on innovation and discovery. ConnecTech brings Jewish students at the two institutions even closer together.
ConnecTech's primary focus is on student interaction creating personal bonds between small core groups of students at each institute. On each campus, students engage in Jewish learning on ethical and moral issues relating to science and technology and participate in monthly tzedek/social justice activites in the local communities of Boston/Haifa. Students also travel to the other’s campuses and see the culture, innovative technology ventures, and create people-to-people bridges between the two communities.
ConnecTech is part of Combined Jewish Philanthropy’s Boston-Haifa Connection.
