Main research activities
The Institutum Iudaicum was founded on March 3, 1971. Its aim is to, with all means proper to a university level, contribute to a better knowledge of Judaism and its traditions, and to achieve greater mutual understanding among the various spiritual groups in Belgium.
The Institutum Iudaicum counts agnostics as well as Catholics, Jews, and Protestants among its members and it is subsidised by the Jewish, Catholic and Protestant communities. Every year, it organizes one or two colloquia, occasionally supported by the Fund for Scientific Research (FWO-V & FNRS) and the contributions to which, if possible, are collected and published.
