How your support makes a difference
The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies offers research-based courses, events, and online resources that expand horizons and encourage dialogue.
We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you!
Here’s what the generosity of community members and supporters like you makes possible:
Public events that educate & expand horizons
Your donations make the majority of our public programming possible, from faculty lectures on ancient Jewish magic and present-day anti-Semitism to our popular International Ladino Day celebration, which combines scholarship on the Jewish language of Ladino with the wisdom and knowledge of Seattle’s own Ladino-speaking community.
Unique learning opportunities for students
Your donations support opportunities for students to engage with Jewish studies learning and faculty in unique ways, including a graduate fellowship promoting graduate-level research and community around Jewish studies, an opportunity grant program supporting language-learning and travel, and events that bring students together with faculty for small-group discussions on a wide range of topics, including anti-Semitism in the present, modern literature, and love.
Hebrew language programming and innovative courses
Individual donations support the University of Washington’s full-time Hebrew instructor, go towards innovations like the Hebrew program’s new instructional model and curriculum, and allow faculty to develop one-of-a-kind courses like our recent classes on Jewish comedy, Jewish perspectives on bioethics, and Sephardic/Hispanic cooking and culture.
High-quality resources available to everyone
Your support allows our staff, faculty, and students to share their academic expertise with the public through high-quality, research-based articles and online resources unlike anything else available online.
We’re so grateful for your donations and for everything they allow us to do for our community and our students.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
