It also holds events such as art exhibitions, lectures, conferences, film screenings and participates in Chinese festivals.

The Department of Hebrew, Biblical & Jewish Studies

Our Jewish Culture courses course materials are designed by The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning – a project of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem – and managed through the University’s Department of Hebrew, Biblical & Jewish Studies. Founded in 1945, the department has developed a comprehensive program that explores the complexities of the Old and New Testament, the range of Jewish history and teaches Classical Hebrew and Arabic, along with other ancient languages. Course materials developed by inventor and self-made woman Florence Melton are based on ancient and modern texts and connect students to the past, present and future, linking them to enduring Jewish values and ideas.
