Judaica Collection


The Judaica collection supports the research of students involved in the graduate Jewish Studies Designated Emphasis, and the undergraduate minor, and instructional activities of faculty and students in a number of interdisciplinary fields. These include Near Eastern languages and literature; Talmudic studies, including the Babylonian and Palestinian Talmuds and subsequent texts and commentaries; rabbinic, medieval, and modern Jewish history throughout the world; modern Jewish thought; and comparative literature, including works in Hebrew, Yiddish, English, and other languages.
