How to reach the Archives

By bus

  • Public Transportation: Egged Bus No. 68
    Bus route: Givat Ram, Kfar Hi-tech (last bus stop)
  • Bus no. 68 runs from the Hebrew University at Mount Scopus to the Edmond J. Safra Campus of the Hebrew University on Givat Ram, where we are located. It has a stop at the Central Bus Station (on the same side as the station), but can be boarded at any bus stop on that route (for route info contact Egged transportation service at *2800).

  • At the last stop on the line (in the parking lot), at the right of the bus stop, there is a path between buildings 2/2 and 2/3 and stairs that go down to our building. The entrance is on the right hand side of the building.

By car

  • Entry by car directly to the Archives is possible for holders of permits from the University or upon receipt of a temporary permit from the Archives. To receive a temporary permit, please call or send us an e-mail request in advance of your visit.

  • Once you enter via the main entrance to the Edmond J. Safra Campus of the Hebrew University on Givat Ram and pass the security check point, continue on Balfour Road until you reach Rakach Street, a narrow road on your right. Turn right on Rakach Street and continue until you come to a large parking lot on your right [the last stop on the bus line].

  • Park your car. At the right of the bus stop, there is a path between buildings 2/2 and 2/3 and stairs. The building at the very bottom of the stairs is the Archives’. The entrance is on the right hand side of the building.

  • However, there is the option of parking at the main entrance of the University and continuing to the Archives by boarding bus no. 68 or 69 at the security gate on the right of the main parking lot.

Access directions for people with limited mobility

  • The Archives are accessible to handicapped people. 

  • Once you enter via the main entrance to the Edmond J. Safra Campus of the Hebrew University on Givat Ram and pass the security check point, continue along "Derech Balfour" for about a kilometer.

  • Turn down the second road on your right (about thirty meters after the big turn to the right to Givat Mordechai). This is a one-way road, surrounding the high-tech village. The road drops down, curves, and then rises again. In about the middle of the rise there is a green dumpster.

  • Park your car a little behind, and turn left [walk] up the path to the second building [the sign reads 3/4 The central archives….] continue to walk to the end of this building and turn left to the entrance.

גישה לבעלי מוגבלויות

  • בכניסה הראשית של אדמונד י' ספרא  (גבעת רם), צריך לפנות ימינה אחרי בניין ה-JOINT ולהגיע למחסום של כניסת המכוניות והאוטובוסים ולהציג תעודה מזהה.
  • לאחר מכן, ממשיכים בכביש "דרך בלפור" כקילומטר. בפנייה השנייה (כשלושים מטר אחרי הפנייה הגדולה ימינה לשער גבעת מרדכי) פונים לכביש חד סטרי, שמקיף את כפר ההי-טק. הכביש יורד למטה, מתעקל, ולאחר מכן עולה שוב. באמצע העלייה ניצב פח זבל גדול בצבע ירוק ('צפרדע'). יש להחנות את הרכב  מעט אחריו, ולפנות שמאלה לשביל. הארכיון נמצא בביתן השני עם השילוט 4 / 3 , הכניסה מהדלת המרוחקת.
