Department of Judaic Studies

Mission Statement

The Judaic Studies Department at Brooklyn College is committed to rigorous, critical and serious teaching and research about the Jewish civilization born in the ancient Middle East that has flourished in a variety of forms in many places for more than three thousand years. The department's course offerings and programs reflect the chronological scope and geographic diversity of the Jewish experience, with particular strength in the fields of intellectual, religious and social history, founded on analytic study of primary sources. Courses on Hebrew and Yiddish promote access to broad Jewish literature that is also studied in translation, while students are urged to study Arabic, Spanish and other languages that facilitate access to sources. The department also actively seeks to promote study of the many Jewish communities of Brooklyn.
