Description

The course gives basic skills in rabbinic Hebrew while at the same time providing insights into the culture of rabbinic Judaism and the scope, style and characteristics of rabbinic literature. Students will study a selection of early Jewish texts with a special focus on the main works of classical rabbinic literature: The Mishnah, Mekhilta, Genesis and Leviticus Rabbah, and the Babylonian Talmud. In addition to convoluted legal reasoning (the Talmud in particular), these texts include legends, folk tales, scriptural interpretations, parables, theology, and magical incantations. To the religious, the non-religious and scholars alike, they open a window to Jewish culture in antiquity. Brief selections from the rabbinic sources will be read in Hebrew along with an English translation. Longer passages will be read in English translation only.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
