  • About

    Judaic Studies at Yeshiva University's Stern College for Women exposes students to the content, methods and history of the Jewish legal system. Knowledge of Jewish law is essential for living a full Jewish life and for translating Jewish values into action.

    Intensive study of texts from the biblical period through Talmudic literature, medieval codes and commentaries, as well as modern responsa, provides insight into law as a means of social governance, the functions of dissent and the relationship between law and ethics.

    Please contact us if you have any questions about Judaic Studies or the Rebecca Ivry Department of Jewish Studies at Stern College. We look forward to hearing from you.
