Two Israeli universities ranked in top 100

Two Israeli universities - Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University - were ranked in the top 100 in the world in an annual ranking issued by The Times Higher Education (THE) World Top Universities by Reputation 2012. THE issues the survey annually.
The Times Higher Education (THE) World Top Universities by Reputation 2012 ranked the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the 61-70 range and Tel Aviv University in the 81-90 range.

Ankara, Turkey's Middle East Technical University was the only other university in the Middle East to make the list, coming in at the 91-100 range.

This wasn't the first time that Israeli universities were recognized by the publication. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was ranked the 121st best university in the world and Tel Aviv University the 166th in the publication's World University Rankings 2011-2012. On the same list, the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and Bar-Ilan University were ranked in the 201-225 range and 301-350 range respectively.

According to the weekly, the rankings of universities are determined according to the "overall measure of their esteem that combines date on their reputation for research and teaching."
I'm amazed that the Technion is not higher up, but it's nice to beat Turkey. Heh.

Very nice. Hmm. Don't see Weizmann... top drawer in biomed... maybe because they don't have undergrad.
