The Hungarian Hebrew Studies Society continues its tradition of organizing the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Conference. This one-day-long yearly meeting will take place this time on 5 February 2020, at the Jewish Theological Seminary – University of Jewish Studies. Our conference series commemorates the founding president of our Society, Prof dr. József Schweitzer (1922–2015), former Chief Rabbi of Hungary and director of the Rabbinical Seminary.

The Hungarian Hebrew Studies Conference has set a twofold goal. First, it provides a forum where members of the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Society, and in general, scholars of Hebrew Studies in Hungary and abroad can encounter each other, reflect upon each other’s research, and build scholarly networks. Second, we also aim at enhancing the communication between Hebrew studies and related disciplines.

This year a special emphasis will be given to papers dealing with the research topics of Géza Xeravits, vice-president of the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Society, who passed away recently.

The abstract submission deadline this year is 20 November 27 November 2019. For more details, please refer to the call-for-papers on this page.

We are looking forward to the participation of our colleagues. We are also soliciting their help in encouraging their undergraduate, graduate and doctorate students to present a talk or a poster at the Hungarian Hebrew Studies Conference.
