Each semester, the Center hosts informal lunch seminars to discuss academic topics related to the field of Jewish Studies. The lunch seminars are for Carolina’s faculty and graduate students, and interested undergraduates. Reservations are required as lunch will be provided. Reading materials are often sent in advance of the lunch seminar.
Lunch will be provided so reservations are required.
Lunch seminars are held at the Center in Pettigrew Hall, first floor.
