Jewish Studies Pathway

 The Jewish Studies Pathway is designed for students who wish to deepen their knowledge of Judaism and
 Jewish culture. These courses can help students perceive the relationship of Judaism to other world
 religions and to understand Judaism’s impact on Western culture. It can stimulate reflection on
 fundamental human values.
