The Campus is the dream of Michael Greenberg, who was a student in the first ulpan session and a lone soldier on Sde Eliyahu. Michael was involved in all stages of the creation of the campus together with the architect, Tzvika Tamari who was born and raised on the kibbutz.
Located on Kibbutz Sde Eliyahu, Campus Habayta opened its doors in August 2018. The goal of Habayta is to give young Orthodox Jewish adults, from all over the globe, a warm and supporting environment to start their lives in Israel; or in the words of Michael Greenberg, "to embrace the youngsters".
