American Jewish University is a thriving center of Jewish resources and talent built upon the mission of Jewish Learning, Culture, Ethics, Leadership and Peoplehood. In 2007, the University of Judaism merged with the Brandeis-Bardin Institute, creating a landmark entity, from then on known as American Jewish University. This new organization now boasted two campuses, a single vision and a shared future. Today, American Jewish University is one of the largest and most innovative Jewish institutions in the country.
Heartened by our vibrant Jewish community, we continue to add faculty, expand our curriculum and develop innovative academic programs that prepare undergraduate, graduate and rabbinical students for rewarding lives – as leaders in the Jewish community as well as society at large. Our graduates are making a difference in the world.
Our role as a leadership training ground is matched by our commitment to provide the broader community with a variety of substantive educational experiences. Our lectures, symposia, special institutes, center for continuing education classes and a wide array of cultural offerings are enhancing thousands of individuals’ understanding of Judaism, and expanding their knowledge about the history, traditions and languages of this glorious ancient heritage.
While American Jewish University takes pride in the histories of both the University of Judaism and Brandeis-Bardin, each founded in the 1940’s, we are also looking to the future. Both campuses are replete with exciting possibilities that serve to further the promise and potential of the millions of Jews in this nation.
The Brandeis Collegiate Institute (BCI) invites young Jewish adults, ages 18 to 26, to think deeply, express creatively, and live fully. Through artistic expression, dynamic learning, spiritual reflection and nature exploration, BCI programs give these young adults the unique opportunity to be immersed in the diversity of Jewish culture, to envision their own Jewish life, and to connect to all aspects of the community, both small and large. Some participants come from other countries such as The Ukraine, Argentina and India, and BCIers will learn from, and interact with, some of the world’s finest Jewish scholars and artists.
Camp Alonim is a cross-denominational camp for children ages six through thirteen. We strive to spark a love for Jewish culture, tradition and community in our campers by exposing them to a multitude of ways to be Jewish.
We are an American Jewish University for the entire community: college students, graduate students in business, education and arts, aspiring rabbis, Jews of every age, belief, background and denomination, and non-Jews as well. We invite you to learn more about our wealth of programs, how we are impacting the world and how you, too, can become a part of our extended community.
