Jewish Studies

This syllabus seeks to promote an understanding of Judaism as a major world religion as well as an appreciation of its historical, literary and cultural contribution to the world.  The syllabus is for first, second and third year students in post-primary education. It is assessed by examination at the end of third year at Ordinary and Higher Levels through a written examination.


Note: The current syllabus was introduced in 2009. A new specification for Junior Cycle Jewish Studies will be introduced for first year students from September 2019 and assessed in 2022 for the first time.
