Established in 1963 as a post-doctoral center of archaeological and biblical studies, the Jerusalem campus has grown since 1971 to serve as the center of HUC-JIR’s Israel experience for stateside students, including the Year-In-Israel Program, and prepares Israeli students for leadership in the Israel Rabbinical Program, M.A. Program in Pluralistic Jewish Education with the Melton Centre of Hebrew University, and the Blaustein Center for Pastoral Counseling’s Mezorim Program.
Scholars and students from around the world are enriched by the excavations and publications of the Nelson Glueck School of Biblical Archaeology, and the resources of the Abramov Library and Skirball Museum. The Murstein Synagogue welcomes the community for services and holidays.
The Taube Family Campus was named during a groundbreaking ceremony honoring Tad Taube, founder and chairman of Taube Philanthropies, on June 29, 2016. Taube Philanthropies’ $15 million grant will enable the Reform Movement’s headquarters in Israel to update, enhance and beautify its Jerusalem campus as a vibrant academic, cultural and spiritual center welcoming the larger Israeli community and visitors from around the world.
