The Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies

The Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, established in 1972, has created a programme of seminars, lectures, conferences, colloquia and visiting scholars which is unique in Europe.  The Centre has played a major role over these years in establishing the University of Oxford as a focus for teaching and research in Hebrew and Jewish Studies.  Since 2014 the Centre and its library, an important resource for European Jewish history, rabbinics and modern Hebrew literature, have been housed in the Clarendon Institute, a University building in the heart of Oxford.
