Tel Aviv University is shutting down its French department, shortly after the University of Haifa made the same decision, Haaretz reported. Michele Bokobza Kahan, a French studies professor at Tel Aviv University, said: “We don’t have enough students and have very few faculty members. We cannot maintain the department like this. We work very hard to provide the students with what they need and it was very moving to see their reactions and how sad they were.”
