Welcome to the Heidelberg University of Jewish Studies!

The Heidelberg University of Jewish Studies welcomes all students and academics, regardless of origin or religious affiliation. It is a place of lively academic enquiry into all facets of Jewish religion, history, cultures and societies. It is interested in the whole of Jewish cultures across geographical and temporal spaces: in the past and present, as self-conscious Judaism, as a diaspora and also in the Land of Israel.

Courses of Study at the HfJS

Fabiola E.

Thanks to the diverse range of courses on offer, I was able to focus entirely on my interests and specializations right from the start of my Master's degree. Thanks to the small size and the fact that we know each other, professors can fully engage with the students and their wishes, encourage and help them, be it with theses, scholarship applications or the organization of stays abroad.
