Rehovot has a reputation for welcoming Olim. From the time it was founded in 1890, Rehovot has attracted attention from abroad. The world famous Weizmann Institute of Science, the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food & Environment (HUJI) and assorted hi-tech and biotech businesses define the character of this modern city. Along with the two academic institutes in Rehovot, other universities such as Bar-Ilan and Tel-Aviv are within an easy commute, making Rehovot a true University town. The ongoing influx of visiting academics from abroad helps to infuse the city with a truly international flavor. Rehovot is centrally located and the improved highway and rail systems make Rehovot easily accessible from the Gush Dan, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem areas.
