50 Years Anniversary Celebration- Hebrew and Jewish Studies Department at University College London

50-Year Anniversary Celebration

22 November 2017


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.

We are planning a special celebration of this fifty-year anniversary with the UCL academic community, our students, our alumni and friends.  The event will take place on the evening of 7 February 2018 at 6pm, offering an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.

The event will feature a rich programme of music and presentations including a ten-year memorial tribute to the late Professor John Klier, our Head of Department from 1994 – 2002.
