Jewish Philosophy


Deena Rabinovich, Chair

Jewish Philosophy at Yeshiva University's Stern College for Women increases students' knowledge of and sensitivity to the central issues of Jewish philosophical thought through the ages. Free will, theodicy, messianic expectation, ethical theories and other issues receive careful analysis. Through the study of primary source material, students receive training in philosophical terminology and the tools of philosophical analysis. Courses include Jewish Ethics, Theory of Evil, Philosophy of Yehuda Halevi, Philosophy of Maimonides and Philosophy of Rav Soloveitchik.

Please contact us if you have any questions about Jewish Philosophy or the Rebecca Ivry Department of Jewish Studies at Stern College. We look forward to hearing from you.
