Mission Statement

The International Institute for Jewish Genealogy is committed to developing Jewish genealogy into a recognized field of academic investigation, within the realm of Jewish Studies and in association with a broad range of other sciences on an inter-disciplinary basis.

It seeks to do this by conducting scholarly research into all aspects of Jewish genealogy, both independently and collaboratively with other institutions and social scientists, as well as by promoting the teaching of Jewish genealogy at university level.

In so doing, the Institute aspires to enrich and advance the work of family historians and, at the same time, make a meaningful contribution to the future of the Jewish People by nurturing and enhancing its roots.
