Jewish Studies Lectures
Each year, the Jewish Studies Program sponsors several public events in order to forge connections between the Westchester Jewish community and the undergraduate program.
These events can include:
- films, often Israeli or international, moderated by faculty members or guest speakers
- public lectures on topics in history, religion, literature, or philosophy, usually thematically tied to a course
- lectures relating to Holocaust studies
