"Tour of Jewish Poland - Past, Present, and Future" - a collaboration between Brown RISD Hillel, Professor Adam Teller (Associate Professor of Judaic Studies and History), and the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland Foundation.

The Program in Judaic Studies is now accepting applications for the Undergraduate Essay Prize in Judaic Studies. The award will go to the best academic essay written by a current Brown University undergraduate (regardless of concentration) on any topic relating to Jews and Judaism. Papers that use interdisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged. Submissions can include (but are not limited to) a paper used in a course (revised or not), original research, or a thesis chapter that can stand on its own.
