Welcome To The Arizona Center For Judaic Studies

The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies seeks to explore people in all their marvelous diversity, as individuals, within their own communities, and within their larger societies. Our expertise in Judaic languages, history, religion, and culture provide a deep understanding of Jews and Judaism on their own terms through time and across cultures. Our faculty, courses, other academic resources, and lecture series offer educational opportunities for University of Arizona students, for the Tucson community, and for interested parties nationally and internationally.  We enrich the life of our community by offering scholarship on one of the oldest and most influential civilizations in human history.
