Hotels near Baltimore Hebrew University in Baltimore, MD

Formerly known as Baltimore Hebrew University, the Baltimore Hebrew Institute at Towson University is part of the College of Liberal Arts and located on Towson’s campus, just under ten miles from downtown Baltimore, Maryland. Baltimore Hebrew Institute was originally founded in 1919 as the Baltimore Hebrew College and Teachers Training School. Located in the Park Heights neighborhood of Baltimore, the college was the only institute of higher learning in Maryland devoted exclusively to all aspects of Judaic and Hebraic studies. In 2009, the University System of Maryland Board of Regents approved the merger of Baltimore Hebrew University with Towson University.

According to its mission statement, Baltimore Hebrew Institute has three main areas of focus: support the growing Judaic studies programs at Towson; cultivate a vibrant, cohesive community for its master’s and doctoral students; and provide adult learners with continuing education courses, special programs and community lectures in Judaic studies. BHI serves as a hub for Towson’s Judaic Studies graduate students, providing access to the institute’s scholarship and fellowship opportunities. Additionally, BHI focuses on the development of the extensive Judaic collection at the Albert Cook Library. Currently, Towson offers a number of programs in Judaic Studies: Master of Arts Degrees in Jewish Studies, Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service; Post Baccalaureate Certificates in Jewish Education and Jewish Communal Service; and an undergraduate minor in Jewish Studies.

Towson University is four-year, degree-granting public institution with a current student enrollment of over 20,000. It consists of eight colleges offering over one hundred bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences, and applied professional fields.

Located on a 328-acre campus in the Baltimore suburb of Towson, students are only a short walk away from shops, restaurants, bookstores, movie theaters and the Towson Town Center Mall.
