The Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies (UAJS) is a professional non-governmental organization aimed to coordinate activities for the development of Jewish Studies in Ukraine.

In cooperation with world’s top academic institutions, the UAJS organizes round tables, discussions, public lectures, mini courses, and other academic events.

In 2015–2020, the UAJS co-administered the MA in Jewish Studies Program at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.

Judaica Ukrainica, a peer-reviewed annual journal of the UAJS, accepts scholarly contributions – articles, documentary publications, and reviews – in a variety of fields ranging from Jewish civilization broadly conceived to Jews, Jewish history and culture in Ukraine.

The membership of the UAJS is open to scholars resident in Ukraine and abroad, who work in the field of Jewish Studies, translators to and from Jewish languages, artists, etc. There are two (Full and Student) membership categories.
