Event description

Description

Fifty years ago, UCL elevated its traditional Hebrew studies, established in 1826, to an independent Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies, as we all know it today. Since then we have remained the only university department in the UK dedicated exclusively to the field of Hebrew and Jewish Studies.

Join us for a special celebration of this fifty-year anniversary with the UCL academic community, our students, our alumni and friends.
