About the Program

Jewish Studies is a rich, interdisciplinary minor that investigates the religion, history, culture, literature, languages and 3,000-year civilization of the Jews. The Jewish Studies minor is available to all students, regardless of religious, ethnic, or educational background. It includes both the theological study of the Jewish religion and the historical study of the Jewish people, from biblical times to the modern era. From the liberation of the Israelite slaves in ancient Egypt to the creation of the modern state of Israel; from Moses, Deborah, and the biblical prophets to Maimonides, Spinoza, Kafka, Peretz, Baalshem Tov, Buber, Golda Meir, and Philip Roth: the varieties of Jewish historical, religious, literary, political, and philosophical expression are critically explored.
