Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies (The Hebrew University, Jerusalem)
The Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies, is currently responsible for coordinating the teaching departments and research centers devoted to the pursuit of Jewish Studies at the University. The eight teaching departments incorporated in the Institute – Bible, Talmud, Hebrew Literature, Jewish History, Jewish Thought, Hebrew Language, Jewish and Comparative Folklore, Yiddish - have a combined student body of over twelve-hundred students, pursuing undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees.
Based at the Mandel Institute of Jewish Studies, the first two projects of this initiative are Scholion and the Mandel Scholars program. It is the hope of the Foundation that this constellation of scholars and their many students will help shape the nature of Jewish studies. These scholars will produce work that extends their own fields of inquiry, while the fruits of the interdisciplinary work can also be translated into selected realms critical to the Jewish people, such as Jewish education.
