Courses in Judaic Studies

The Judaic Studies Program promotes the study of Jewish civilization, of Jewish religious expressions and traditions, and of Jewish cultural, social, linguistic, and political formations and movements in all their variety. It supports teaching and research on Jewish life and Judaism from the Biblical period to the twenty-first century, in all parts of the world where Jews have lived. Judaic Studies approaches these subjects from all disciplinary angles and scholarly perspectives, and equally welcomes Jewish and non-Jewish scholars and students. The program includes the official non-English languages of Israel (Hebrew and Arabic).
