Hebrew and Jewish studies have been part of the fabric of teaching at the University of Melbourne since 1946. It began with the endowment of the Lazarus and Abraham Sicree Chair of Semitic Studies and the appointment of the foundation professor, Maurice Goldman. Since then, Hebrew and Jewish studies have earned both national visibility and international recognition, and have acquired a place of honour for scholarly excellence, educational initiatives and cultural outreach.
