Jewish history, culture, civilization and religion are filled with a wealth of traditions, achievements, and knowledge passed down through the centuries. It is the goal of the Jewish Studies program that this treasured heritage be shared with an international community of Jews and non-Jews who are seeking wider knowledge and understanding.
