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.

The Terezín ghetto as a symbol and testimony.
The starting point will be Yosef Yerushalmi’s concept of Zajor (remembers) and the duty of memory. Part of the work of Saúl Friedländer and the debates on the subject will be reviewed, as well as concepts from Friedrich Nietzsche, Walter Benjamin, Tzvetan Todorov regarding memory and its “abuse”. The theme of the testimony will be discussed, taking the Terezín ghetto as an example for the cultural activities that took place there and for the artistic and personal testimonies. The last block will be destined to debate the memory of hatred and the memory of life as an ethical issue, focusing on the work of Emmanuel Levinas. Cost: Two payments of $ 2,262
