The Tanakh department at Bar-Ilan University is the largest of its kind in the world devoted to the study of the Hebrew Bible. Our outstanding faculty of scholars cover a wide range of subdisciplines and contribute broadly to the scholarly community. Students considering graduate work are invited to propose research projects in a wide array of disciplines.  We also offer a rich list of course offerings for registered students and for auditors.  The department is rooted in the in-depth study of classical traditional texts as well as in cutting edge methodologies as well.  This methodological openness is matched by an openness and camaraderie between faculty and students.  We are proud not only of our academic excellence, but also of the warm scholarly community that we have created as well. I invite all who wish to plumb the depths of the Tanakh  to join us at all levels of study.
The Tanakh department is dedicated to the teaching and critical study of the plain meaning of the text of the Hebrew Bible.  The department also imparts tools for the study of the entire tradition of classical commentators – the ancient translations from the second-Temple period, Talmudic writings, medieval and early modern rabbinic commentators.  Study in the department imparts tools for critical study in linguistic, historical, archaeological literary and theological approaches to the text.
