Institute of Jewish Studies

Welcome at the Institute of Jewish Studies at the University of Antwerp.

The Institute focuses on the academic study of Judaism from a variety of cultural disciplines, including history, philology, literary theory, religious studies, law, philosophy and sociology. The Institute is active in academic research, university education and educational services for a general public.

Each academic year, the Institute organizes more than twenty lectures by national and international experts. These Thursday evening lectures are aimed at a broad audience and are freely accessible. The Institute organizes language courses Yiddish and modern Hebrew, as well as reading groups.

The Institute also organizes academic conferences, seminars and workshops, often in cooperation with Belgian and international academic and cultural institutions.

The Institute is fully integrated into the University of Antwerp and is supported by the Ministry of Education of the Flemish Community. It was established in the autumn of 2001.
