Blocked services

The University’s phone system blocks certain phone numbers such as telegrams and numbers starting with 1212.

Some blocked numbers can be released upon request, without any charge (for example international calls). IP phones can dial 1-700 or 1-800 numbers directly, but those with non-IP phones need to prefix these numbers with the local city area code.  (02 for Jerusalem, 08 for Rehovot).


The Switchboard

The Hebrew University's switchboard operates between 8:00  and 16:00

The switchboard number is 02658111

The University switchboard provides information on internal phone numbers. For information about external numbers use the Bezek site:


Dial/search telephone number service by saying a name

There is no need to look for phone numbers or wait for the switchboard:

  • Call 02-6584444 from any phone or abbreviated dialing 84444 from your University office or mobile phone.
  • Say the requested name (first name and last name) and the system will automatically connect you to your number. (The service is available to extensions and mobiles that appear in the university phone book.)


Caller-ID to Outside Phone Lines.

The University uses multiple phone line providers and therefore the number seen by the people outside the University is dependent upon the destination of the call. The only official number is a bezeq number. The others are “temporary numbers” that enable the recipient of the call to dial back.  Do not make these numbers public, they could change and became irrelevant.
