The first institute in Italy dedicated
to promoting Jewish culture
through high-level academic studies.

A new chapter,
with your support.

Since 2017, Shemah has been offering high-level academic courses on the history of Jewish culture.

Our program grants the possibility of accumulating, over time, a consolidative knowledge of the history of Jewish culture in its various aspects. Our approach is systematic and interdisciplinary, as it highlights the dialogical nature of Jewish culture through direct readings of Jewish texts. The School is based in Florence, an historical center of humanism and dialogue, but our courses can be attended from remote.
