The 38,000-square-foot convention center stands on a critical crossroad in the campus and opens a dialogue between the university and its neighbors. As such, it is a gateway and beacon for the students, faculty, guests and the public.

The concept for the Wohl Centre, “Voices and Echoes”, symbolizes the two essential components of the Bar-Ilan University: the secular and the sacred. Apparent in the form of the building is the interrelation between the dynamics of knowledge and the unifying role of faith. SDL worked with Ortam-Sahar ltd to construct the Centre.The project was generously funded by Maurice Wohl.
