The Hebrew University includes as a central component of its mission the research, teaching and dissemination of Jewish culture. The Department of Judaic Studies deals with this task, both in specific academic programs, as well as in research projects and cross-cutting actions in all UH programs. We believe that the cultural and educational experience of the Jewish people, their creativity and resilience, has something valuable to contribute to our world. We are a space for meeting and dialogue with the humanities, social sciences and religious studies. We promote the circulation of ideas and teachers and the interaction with students and the general public, in a climate of respect and intellectual curiosity. Our programs range from the Hebrew Bible and its classic commentators, to Jewish themes in contemporary cinema and literature. The Department of Judaic Studies includes academic programs, accredited to the SEP, such as the Master in Judaic Studies and the Specialty in Modern Jewish Thought, as well as various continuing education courses and seminars. We also train teachers in Jewish Studies for the community educational network and for various academic institutions. Thanks to the Master in Judaic Studies in the online modality, we are reaching an audience from the interior of the country and the international one, increasingly wide and diverse. All of these programs aim to present an academic, plural and multidisciplinary perspective of the Jewish civilization in its various manifestations.

Its sacred texts such as the Bible and later literature, and its characters and sages, can be read and studied as archetypes of overcoming, struggle and transformation. The relationship with God, with the universe and with human beings is the background of his narratives and stories.

From the reign of David to the expulsion from Spain
Jewish history has an almost geological dimension in its length and length. We can speak of at least 3,200 years of history documented in archaeological evidence, documentary testimonies, and traditions and rituals. The Jewish people faced, like many human communities, numerous situations in which they had to redefine their values, their strategies and their creative continuity. Jewish history has an epic and dramatic dimension, which has been a source of inspiration for many peoples and individuals.

One of the highlights of this development was the mystical rebirth in the city of Safed, in the 16th century, after the expulsion of the Jews from the Iberian Peninsula. The Arizal Kabbalah will produce a new formulation of Kabbalistic ideas, which will have a great impact on various Jewish communities and movements. One of the later developments, influenced among other sources by the Lurianic Kabbalah, is Hasidism. Hasidism, which was born in Ukraine in the second half of the 18th century, will generate a true spiritual revolution in the Jewish world. Today it constitutes one of the central sectors of the haredi or ultra-Orthodox world. Regular cost: $ 6,775 Sign up with a 20% discount until April 4, 2021 Cost with benefit: 3 payments of $ 1,807
