  • The Learning Environment

    The Learning Environment

    The Jewish Studies minor fosters a strong sense of community, in which students feel nurtured and supported. Faculty know students by name and are uniquely able to help them develop intellectually and to craft a program of study suited to their particular interests. The Department of Jewish Thought regularly hosts lectures, conferences and events, with twice-yearly departmental dinners and receptions. These offer unique opportunities to learn about specific aspects of Jewish studies, and, often, the chance to meet famous scholars in the field.

    About Our Facilities

    Many of our classes and event are held in the Samuel Friedman Library in 708 Clemens. This is the geographical heart of our department, featuring books related to all areas of the Jewish experience that foster the passion for inquiry that is central to the Jewish tradition. This provides an intimate setting for students to get to know each other and their professors. That distinguishes Jewish Studies courses from those in other departments.

    About Our Faculty

    The Department of Jewish Thought is a leading program of its kind and the only Department of Jewish Thought in all of the United States. The faculty consists of nationally and internationally prominent scholars who are also devoted teachers. Their interests include philosophy, literature, Bible and Talmud, ethics, mysticism, and gender and sexuality studies, and much more.

    We encourage students to see professors whose research and area of expertise is of potential interest for them and establish working research relationships with the professor.

    We recommend that students speak to the director of undergraduate studies (703 Clemens Hall, agreen6@buffalo.edu), to plan their individualized course of study.
