About Us

The Jewish Studies Program was founded on the conviction that the record contained in the languages, literature, and history of the Jewish people, as these developed across the globe and over thousands of years, are an integral part of the human heritage. Our goal is to ensure that the richness of Jewish culture and its impact on civilization are energetically presented to the Cornell community.
