Ben Zvi Institute for the study of Jewish communities in the East

Ben Zvi Institute
for the study of Jewish communities in the East



The Ben-Zvi Institute of Yad Izhak Ben-Zvi and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was founded by Izhak Ben-Zvi in 1947, for the purpose of studying documents, manuscripts and printed material relating to the history, communal life and culture of the Jewish communities under Islam and in other countries of the Middle East and Asia; for initiating and supporting research on these subjects; and for publishing monographs and texts reflecting the history and cultural activity of these communities.


The activities of the Institute are supported by the Center for Integration of the Oriental Jewish Heritage of the Ministry of Education and Culture.


The Institute's library has a rich collection of manuscripts and rare books.
