Together, the Center for Jewish Studies and the Jewish Studies Program enhance knowledge of all facets of Jewish life through undergraduate and graduate courses, research conferences, workshops, scholar-in-residence programs and public lectures. Committed to critical inquiry and scholarly entrepreneurship, Jewish Studies offers a new and creative model to integrate a Jewish perspective into all relevant disciplines and academic units, including history, religious studies, political science, justice studies, international letters and cultures, film and media studies, and law. Concomitantly, Jewish studies practices the ideal of social embeddedness by conducting outreach programs and serving as an intellectual resource to Jewish life in metropolitan Phoenix.
