 Matthias Messerle

Fall 2015

Tubingen University

      Why Haifa? Because I was looking for a place where I can study Jewish Studies and Islamic Studies. A place where I can combine both cultures, and where it is safe. I have been to Israel before but I knew that Haifa has an  atmosphere of multiculturalism, understanding, and of coexistence.

     What do you like the most about Haifa? Meeting people from all over the world, new friends, and the peaceful atmosphere.
