  Our History

The Panama Canal (PC) College was established in 1935 in the Panama Canal Zone to serve the Servicemembers of the United States of America.

In 1958, a division of the Panama Canal College was renamed as Ashdod University.  Dr. Yoval Gorovitz and Mrs. Natalia Simpson’s dreams were to establish a Jewish Higher Learning Institution to  dedicate to the Arts and Humanities and  to educate students in the horror of the Holocaust. They received the support of the Jewish  Education Foundation to provide classes  to Jews and Non-Jews alike in the Canal Zone.

In 2004, Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary-General stated “The rise of anti-Semitism anywhere is a threat to people everywhere. Thus, in fighting anti-Semitism we fight for the future of all humanities.
