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  Bachelor of Arts degree program, the fastest-growing number of faculty in any Jewish Studies program, 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.

Gifts at all levels are essential and enable the Center to maintain the reputation for excellence that we have 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. The Fund for Jewish Studies is another key component of the Center’s overall fund-raising program. The unrestricted dollars provided by alumni and friends have a tremendous impact on students and programs.
