The Jewish Studies Program at Kent State University was introduced in the fall of 1975 and has proudly served the students of KSU (Jewish and non-Jewish alike) with quality academics and interesting programs. I am honored to be next in a long line of devoted Directors and am completely committed to making JWST the premier program of its kind in Northeast Ohio. My goals are simple:
- To increase enrollment in the Jewish Studies minor;
- To create collaborative partnerships with other departments and programs on campus in order to offer varied courses and activities; and
- To enrich student life by bringing exciting and relevant speakers, films, music and exhibits to our campus.
In Hebrew we say: ללמוד ולעשות "To learn and to act." Study alone is not enough. We expect (and will help) our students to be engaged with the world around them. We encourage you to explore our scholarship, internship and study abroad opportunities.If not now, when...?
