Studying in Be'er Sheva?

Shima is a magical secular settlement in the southern Hebron Mountains, where about 80 young families live. The settlement is about 25 minutes from Ben Gurion University, Sami Shimon College and Herzog College. In the student village in the locality live 20 male and female students, who wake up every morning to the original landscape of the desert book. Students enjoy a young and cohesive community, and a variety of cultural, educational and community events in collaboration with the residents. The highlight of the village is the pub 'Pablo' which the students run every Thursday. The pub produces a cultural center for mountain and surrounding localities and attracts many young people.
