News for Spring 2019
The JS faculty has been working hard to keep Jewish Studies constantly developing.
Our new faculty member, Professor Rami Zeedan, has started teaching a series of courses focusing on modern Israel, adding (in addition to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict), new courses "Politics and Gov't in Israel" (Fa2018), "Palestinian Society in Israel" and "Mandatory Palestine: 1920-1948" (Sp2019), and "Israel: From Idea to State" and "Polls & Public Opinion in Israel", the last at the graduate level.
For me, this is my last semester teaching. At the end of June 2019, I shall be retiring after 46 years of continuous teaching.
Back last Fall, we initiated the process of selecting the next Director, and the recommendations of the Search Committee were conveyed to the Dean but we have not yet heard back what he had decided.
Aside from that uncertainty, we are still moving forward and getting better all the time!
