The Jewish Theological Seminary – University of Jewish Studies, Hungary (JTS–UJSH, or OR–ZSE) is a dynamically prospering small university under the auspices of the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (Mazsihisz). Opened in 1877 as the rabbinical seminary (Landesrabbinerschule, or Jewish Theological Seminary) of the neolog (positive-historical) movement in Hungary, it is among the oldest institutions in the world training non-orthodox rabbis and cantors. It has gradually broadened its profile since the 1990s, and it was awarded a university status in 2000. Now, it offers rabbinical and cantor training programmes, Jewish studies, social work, community building, and it also hosts a doctoral school.
