Established in 1954 to serve the growing Jewish population on the West Coast, and situated adjacent to the University of Southern California since 1971, the Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles is a vital center for higher Jewish learning, scholarly research, and community engagement.
Students from around the world pursue their studies in the School of Rabbinical Studies, Rhea Hirsch School of Education, Zelikow School of Jewish Nonprofit Management, together with over 650 undergraduates from the University of Southern California, who take our courses in the Louchheim School of Judaic Studies.
The Skirball Campus houses an excellent Judaica collection in the Frances-Henry Library, linked to the Klau Library on our Cincinnati Campus, as well as our resources at the Kalsman Institute on Judaism and Health. The campus engages with the community through a broad range of public programs and community leadership initiatives, including Haskalah, a group of young professionals dedicated to support HUC-JIR’s work and mission through advocacy, outreach, and education.
