Doctoral student Oded Oron discusses the plight of African migrants in the state of Israel.
From Our Students
How I came upon my dissertation project is a testament to the support and encouragement that I have had through the faculty and staff at the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies. The Jewish Studies Graduate Fellowship, and Coordinator Dr. Hannah Pressman, encouraged me to pursue the topic, allowing me the invaluable advice, comradery, and support from a real graduate and faculty intellectual community.
This exchange was really helpful for me to broaden my perspective and come up with new research topics.
