Bringing together faculty and students from across various disciplines, the Jewish Studies Workshop seeks to provide a forum for vibrant discourse and critical reflection on work and topics that may range across the field of Judaica. From Jewish language, literature, and music to religion and philosophy, this workshop looks to engage students and faculty interested in Jewish studies while stretching them to think beyond the strictures that currently typify their sub-disciplines.
