Funding Europe’s Leading Jewish Studies Research Centre
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.
