The author of the article gives consideration to the academic study of Judaism in the vast field of Jewish studies, which flourished in Ukraine before the communist regime and which was totally destroyed then, until it re-appeared in 1991. This goal calls forth the article’s structure: first, the modern state of Judaic studies in the universities, research centers and non-government organizations is described. Multiple names of a single field of research: Judaica, Jewish studies, Judaic studies, etc., are also examined there. Special emphasis is given to the correlation between religious studies and the academic study of Judaism, demonstrating the percentage of scientific articles devoted to Judaism in the leading Ukrainian religious studies journal. Besides that the author gives information on the defended Ph.D. thesis and published books and journals, dealing with the academic study of Judaism. The author also resumes problems and shortcomings of the modern Ukrainian Judaic studies, which negatively affect its future.
