The studies at the department are intended for all those interested in acquiring an in-depth knowledge of the Talmudic literature, as well as academic research skills, and to face the challenge of high-level demanding studies. The studies are suitable for a wide range of students, both those with prior knowledge of the Talmudic literature that are interested in studying this literature from a new and refreshing perspective and to adapt to themselves the scholarly method practiced at the department, as well as those with no prior knowledge, who wish to gain an in-depth and fascinating acquaintance with the Talmudic literature from the viewpoint of modern scholarship.

All students receive individual guidance as to course selection and registration, according to each student’s knowledge, qualifications and interests.
