A Remarkable Beginning…

The Carolina  Center for Jewish Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences is off to an even  stronger start than any of us could have imagined.  The program is clearly flourishing, with a newly-approved Bachelor of Arts degree program, an ever-increasing faculty, and more than 1,000 students  annually enrolled in a diverse set of courses ranging from biblical archaeology  to the history of the Holocaust to Jews in Russian and Polish literature.

Of  course, the Center could not have reached this level of success without  the generous support of so many Carolina alumni and friends. Among the  gifts that are proving so beneficial are endowments to establish  professorships, support graduate students and undergraduates, fund lectureships, and provide resources for the Center  to meet its most pressing needs. See our list of generous endowment gifts that will benefit Jewish Studies at Carolina for years to come.

The Next Horizon

To further the Center’s aspiration to create a  leading center for Jewish Studies as well as enable it to provide support for graduate  students whose scholarship explores the Jewish experience, the College is  actively seeking an additional $16.2 million in private support.  These funds will be used to recruit and  retain faculty whose teaching and research will enable the Center to expand the  course offerings that a Jewish Studies major will require.  The funds will also be used to offer  fellowships and research and travel support to graduate students in a wide  range of departments, thereby enabling the Center to help prepare the next  generation of teacher-scholars in the field. Learn more about giving opportunities in Jewish Studies.

Of  course, gifts at all levels are essential and enable the Center to  maintain the reputation for excellence that it has already attained.  These visible signs of support will establish an impressive network of  friends whose collective generosity will inscribe the Carolina Center  for Jewish Studies in the Book of Life for generations to come.
