Jewish Studies


Jewish studies also known as Judaic studies is a subject area of study available at many colleges and universities in North America. Traditionally, Jewish studies was part of the natural practice of Judaism by Jews. The study of Torah, Tanakh, and Talmud was all part of every-day religious life for the Jewish people. Since the Renaissance and the growth of higher education through universities in modern times, and following the mass-secularization of most Jews today, many people, including people not of the Jewish faith, have chosen to study Jewish studies as a means of understanding the Jewish religion, heritage, and Jewish history.
