Woolf Institute e-Courses in Jewish Studies

last modified Feb 28, 2014 01:19 PM

In collaboration with the American University in Washington, Woolf Institute offers Bridging the Great Divide: the Jewish-Muslim Encounter, a 15-week course which explores the history, culture and theology of Muslims and Jews, reflecting both on similarities and differences as well as the major challenges.

The Woolf Institute team-led annual course, Jews, Christians and Muslims in Europe: Modern Challenges, is a three-part course which focuses on the relationships between Jews, Christians and Muslims and their impact in modern Europe, looking at their history, culture and issues of citizenship.

The most recent development is the creation of a series of Online Short Courses, where you can learn informally and in your own time with tutor support. Current and future courses include Jewish-Christian Relations in the English Novel and Is Interfaith Dialogue Important?.


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 meets once a term to exchange information and ideas. It is hoped that it will encourage wider participation and a variety of perspectives.
