Acknowledgements

 
The Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life sponsors a number of event series designed to support both scholarship and the arts.  

Each month, the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life sponsors a Faculty Colloquium that showcases the work of a scholar in Judaic Studies.  The informal gathering provides an opportunity for scholars to present and discuss their current research projects. The discussions are open to all, and a kosher lunch is served.

The Yiddish Tish luncheon discussion, established in 1982 by founding Director Arnold Dashefsky, convenes monthly to speak and read in Yiddish. The group welcomes new members of any speaking level!

The Fierberg Lecture in Judaic Studies sponsors the annual Academic Convocation on the Holocaust.  Guest speakers have included award-winning director Vassilis Loules and renowned Holocaust experts Timothy Snyder and Berel Lang.

Additional endowments such as the Ishier Jacobson Fund for Judaic & Middle Eastern Studies sponsors the Maria and Ishier Jacobson Lecture held annually at the UConn Stamford campus; and the Gene and Georgia Mittelman Lecture in Judaic Studies is held annually, featuring such speakers as Dr. Susannah Heschel.

Additionally, we have forged a partnership with Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford to collaborate on cultural and educational events. This relationship extends our capacity to support, sustain, and foster Jewish culture and the arts beyond the campus.

In the spirit of our mission to provide support and enrichment, we also collaborate with many departments, centers, and institutes across the University to fund various lectures and projects of mutual interest.
