International Conferences on Jewish Studies

International conferences on Jewish Studies organized by Sefer Center take place every year in Moscow since 1994. 26 annual international conferences have already been held (1994–2019). This is the only large-scale interdisciplinary conference on Jewish studies in the entire post-Soviet space. It is the unique academic meeting place for the researchers from around the world who work with different aspects of Jewish Studies – from Biblical Studies to the History of the State of Israel, from Jewish philosophy to Jewish-Christian relations, Jewish literature and art, history of the Jews in the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, etc. 

During 1994–2017 Sefer Center annually published proceedings of the International conferences on Jewish Studies. Since 2018, the Sefer Center seized to publish conference proceedings in favor of the publication of a new academic peer-reviewed "Judaic-Slavic Journal".

Dear colleagues,

Center "Sefer" in cooperation with the Center for Slavic-Jewish studies the Institute of Slavic studies organizes the Twenty-seventh international conference on Judaica to be held in Moscow, 31 January – 2 February 2021

We plan to alternate winter and summer conferences, keeping the new frequency of the conference - once a year and a half.

The conference program is expected to include sections reflecting traditional areas of Judaism (biblical and Talmudic studies, Jewish thought, Jewish history of different periods, Judeo-Christian relations, the Holocaust, Israeli studies, languages and literature, art, Ethnology, demography, genealogy, museums and archives, etc.). Topics that allow for an interdisciplinary approach to research are welcome. Reports of graduate students and young researchers, as shown by the positive experience of the past few years, are included in the youth panels of the conference with the participation of specially invited debaters.

 More information about the conference will follow.

Sincerely, organizing Committee.
