Program Overview

Program Description:
The program in Modern Jewish Studies is designed to provide the student with multidisciplinary training in the study of the modern Jewish experience (circa 1750–1980), with an emphasis on religion and culture. Students take courses in a variety of fields but major in either history or literature. The Amos and Zvia Ginor Chair in Israeli Society and Culture, an endowment designed to deepen our understanding of contemporary Israeli society and culture, enables JTS to invite different Israeli scholars to teach for a semester in the Modern Jewish Studies program. Past occupants of the chair have been Gideon Shimoni, Charles Leibman, Gideon Ofrat, and Yoram Bilu.
