The Nevzlin Center

Since the inauguration of its academic activities in November 2003, the Nevzlin Center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has revived the study of the history, culture and tradition of Russian and East European Jewry in the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University and throughout the Israeli and international academic community.





The goal of the Nevzlin Center is to promote multidisciplinary research and teachings of Russian and East European Jewish history and heritage. This goal is established on an ongoing basis through the hosting of visiting scholars from abroad, promoting scholarly dialogue among faculty, postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students, and providing access to the Hebrew University’s extensive research resources.


While its activities are concentrated mostly at the Hebrew University, the Nevzlin Center engages in a large array of cutting-edge international research projects designed to promote scholarly interaction between Israeli and non-Israeli researchers in this as well as in related fields. The Center has cooperated, and continues to cooperate, with many academic institutions and scholars in the former Soviet Union, Europe and the United States in the organization of research projects, conferences and world-class publications.
