Needs of the Jewish Studies Program

Jewish Studies is Growing
In looking to expand our vision, we need the support of our friends. While we have struggled to create the dynamic, developing program that we now have, we aspire to greater heights.

For example, we wish to increase our course offerings and expand our services to our students and to the community. We want to reach out to our alumni, friends, and supporters -- not just meeting their needs but anticipating them. We want to move forward by creating exciting programs, courses, and events that enrich Jewish life in all its aspects and show that Jewish civilization is vibrant and fully present in our lives.

These are tasks not just for one person, but tasks of the entire community. Together, we can help the Jewish Studies Program at Tulane to reach its potential: to become a premier center for Jewish learning.

Specific aims of the program:

  • Expand faculty both in size and expertise
  • Increase the size and quality of the Dr. L. Joseph Cahn Library
  • Develop an Israeli Studies Program
  • Develop a Center for the Study of the Holocaust
  • Maximize the effectiveness of our outreach, extra-curricular, studyabroad, internship, and adult education programs

Specific needs of the program:

  • Faculty Hiring
  • Faculty Research and Development
  • Library Development
  • Publishing Activities in Conjunction with Co-Sponsoring Universities
  • Conferences and Lectures
  • Student Scholarships
