Session I: Undergraduate Mini-Semester

This is a unique learning experience in which students explore the riches of the Bible and rabbinic literature. Courses are given only at the undergraduate level and are open to students of JTS’s Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies, as well as undergraduates enrolled at other universities. Outside students need to demonstrate proficiency in Hebrew beyond the introductory level.

Enrollment in this intensive program is limited; students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of the intensity of the courses, attendance is mandatory. Students are allowed one excused absence, as determined by the instructor. Classes meet six days a week, Sunday through Friday, and each course earns three credits.

Session I Dates: May 16–May 31, 2022
