Jewish civilization has a recorded history of 4,000 years. With texts spanning from the Hebrew Scriptures to post-modern writing, Jewish literature can be found in many languages. While located in many civilizations, Jews have been most intimately involved with those of the West and the Middle East. Studying Jews and Judaism in these contexts provides students with insight into the complexities of culture and identity.
The department has a number of different initiatives that rely on the support of our loyal supporters. We encourage donors to give to the Jewish Studies Fund, which allows the department maximum flexibility. Donations to this fund can be used at the department's discretion based on our greatest needs and priorities.
Thank you for considering to support Jewish Studies.
