The Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies Events
The Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies offers a rich series of programming each semester. We hope you join our event series this spring held in collaboration with the UConn Center for Judaic Studies. To maintain the health and safety of our valued community, all courses and lectures are online through the video conferencing platform Zoom.
The spring semester line-up includes a variety of topics with our presenters sharing from a variety of locations throughout the U.S. A major benefit of our virtual programming is participants can connect regardless of where they live and all of the programs are offered at no cost. We encourage you to browse through our program offerings in the Greenberg Center event calendar below.
