Baltimore Hebrew Institute

The Baltimore Hebrew Institute (formerly Baltimore Hebrew University) at Towson University is committed to supporting the education of Jewish studies scholars, educators and communal professionals who excel in their chosen fields.


Mission Statement

Baltimore Hebrew Institute has three main areas of focus:

  • To provide outstanding opportunities for advanced degrees in Jewish education and communal service and Jewish studies in a vibrant, cohesive community
  • To provide community enrichment in ways that engage and welcome all who are interested
  • To provide adult learners with an array of continuing education course offerings, special programs and community lectures in Judaic studies.

BHI offers engaging non-degree courses that provide opportunities for adults to deepen their understanding of Jewish and Israeli culture, history, education and community.

We are honored and proud to sustain and expand the largest collection of Judaic books and artifacts in the Southeastern United States, housed at Towson’s Albert S. Cook Library.
