Concentrator Lex Rofes '13 published in Contact journal

Judaic Studies Concentrator Lex Rofes '13 was published in the Winter 2013 issue of Contact, a quarterly journal run by the Steinhardt Foundation. His article, "Jewish Learning on Campus: Why I Care About Rabbis Who Died 2,000 Years Ago," discusses his vastly different but equally strong connections to Jewish learning and to Judaic Studies.
