Research and teaching in the field of Jewish Studies take place in a variety of faculties and departments across the University of Cambridge. The Cambridge Forum for Jewish Studies is an initiative whose objective is to join up this activity and communicate the range of expertise and wealth of research in the field that currently exists in the university.
The Forum plans to meet to exchange information and ideas once a term and it is intended that this website will be regularly updated to include details of seminars, lectures, courses, films, talks, exhibitions, visiting scholars and publications on a range of related topics. These will be made available to university members and non-members alike, and those interested can keep abreast of the various areas of research, events and plans of both academic staff and graduate students. It is hoped that the Forum will encourage wider participation and a variety of perspectives.
