A new endowment, funded by anonymous donors, was established last academic year to support the capstone course in Jewish Studies. Funds will be utilized to assist faculty in developing new course content, to provide the financial means to arrange for class field trips and visits to historical and cultural sites, to cover expenses with the professor’s academic department, and to bring in visiting lecturers to enhance the course curriculum. The same donors also provided two other new endowment funds—to support a lectureship for the campus community and general public focused on Sephardic Judaism, and to provide support for faculty and student research and projects in Jewish Studies and Sephardic Judaism.
