The Institute of Jewish Studies (IJS) is dedicated to the promotion of all aspects of Jewish scholarship and civilisation at the highest level of academic excellence. It reaches every section of the Jewish community and the interested non-Jewish public. It collaborates with all academic institutions within the University of London, and throughout the UK and abroad.

"For years I have attended many of the events, lectures and conferences organised by the IJS and have admired their high standard and academic excellence. I was particularly impressed with the 2004 Colloquium in Honour of Jack Lunzer's 80th birthday and Ketzeh ha-Aretz: Jews at the "End of the Earth" in 2005. The exhibition about Argentina a couple of years ago was another special event I truly enjoyed.  I equally enjoyed the conference on Maimonides in 2004. In my capacity as curator of Hebraica at the British Library, it is this particular  type of events that appeal to me most. I do hope IJS will go from strength to strength and would continue to provide a varied and exciting programme."
