Who we are

Past and Present

The Institute of Jewish Studies was established in 1954 in Manchester by the late Professor Alexander Altmann, to promote the academic study of all branches of Jewish culture. Since 1959 it has been located within the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies at UCL, while retaining its autonomous status. The IJS is funded by donations and has its own Patrons, governing body and Director. All its events are free and open to all.
