Jewish Studies Program at Michigan State University

FROM THE DIRECTOR, YAEL ARONOFF

Yael Aronoff - Michigan State Jewish StudiesOur Jewish Studies Program had an exciting fall semester, hosting eight outside speakers and screening one film. This spring we are having fourteen speakers in addition to our 10th Annual Israeli Film Festival. We are co-sponsoring events with a dozen units and programs across the university throughout the year, and continuing our monthly Jewish Studies research seminars with faculty and students.

We’re happy to report that MSU has re-instated all six of the study abroad programs in Israel. Chen Bram, last year’s Serling Visiting Israeli Scholar, will lead the summer program at Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 2015.
