Funding Europe’s Leading Research Centre for Jewish Studies
The Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies of the University of Oxford, fully funded by the Oxford Centre, is the leading research centre for academic Jewish Studies in Europe. Today, Hebrew and Jewish Studies at Oxford are more wide-ranging, more influential and more exciting than at any time in the history of the University.
Curating the Past, Creating the Future
The Centre’s Leopold Muller Memorial Library holds unique collections of books, journals, archives, and pamphlets which constitute an irreplaceable resource for scholars, students, and visitors.
Teaching one of the World’s Greatest Cultures
Undergraduate and graduate courses in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at the University of Oxford, taught by the Centre’s Fellows, cover the study of Jewish history, culture and relations with other traditions from antiquity to modern times, and the study of Hebrew of all periods, Aramaic and Yiddish. For information about the courses, please contact the Faculty of Oriental Studies.
