(IsraelNN.com) The Brigham Young University, a Mormon institution often accused of missionary aims, plans to re-open its Jerusalem Center overlooking the Mount of Olives (Har Tzofim) next January.
The American-based institution said it has scheduled to re-open its Jerusalem branch in June but delayed it because of security concerns, which have kept it closed since 2001.
Brigham Young encountered fierce opposition when it began building its Jerusalem Center and vowed it is not involved in any missionary activities, which Israel law forbids.
