The Brandeis Difference

Founded in the year of Israel’s independence, Brandeis is a secular, research-intensive university that is built on the foundation of Jewish history and experience. Brandeis is dedicated to Jewish values such as a respect for scholarship, critical thinking, and making a positive difference in the world. 

Brandeis is home to one of the oldest and largest Jewish studies programs outside of the State of Israel, as well as many related centers and institutes. Our library houses one of the best collections of Hebraica and Judaica in the nation.
