The Center for Judaic Studies is a resource center that provides the means for students preparing for academic teaching, Christian ministry or service to gain a biblical perspective of the Jewish people and helps equip the Church in making a biblical response to the Jewish community and the modern State of Israel.
This purpose is carried out through academic courses offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, research projects that support and strengthen the University’s commitment to a biblical worldview, as well as campus and community education through invited lectures.
The academic programs of the Center for Judaic Studies are a part of Liberty School of Religion.
