Gratz College is a general college of Jewish studies founded in 1895 offering a broad array of credentials and programs in virtually every area of higher Judaic learning to aspiring Jewish educators, communal professionals, lay people and others seeking to become more knowledgeable of Judaism.

Located in Melrose Park, Pennsylvania, Gratz College traces its origins back to 1856 when banker, philanthropist and communal leader Hyman Gratz, and the Hebrew Education Society of Philadelphia (established in 1849 by Rebecca Gratz and Isaac Leeser) joined together to establish a trust to create a Hebrew teachers college.

It now offers an undergraduate college program leading to a B.A. degree, and a graduate program, leading to master's and doctorates in Jewish education, and a combined doctoral program in Jewish history with Temple University It also offers training to leading to social work degrees, and to cantorial investiture, but it does not offer theological training for the rabbinate. In 2012, Gratz began the only online program leading to a M.A. in Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

In addition it offers courses in adult education, runs the Jewish Community High School, and operates the Tuttleman Library for Jewish studies.
