Become a Friend of CJS

In December 1984, Peter Solomon (AB’ 60, MBA ’63) announced the establishment of the Friends of the Center for Jewish Studies. The Friends of the CJS provides an ongoing base of support for the Center and enables it to expand its present areas of activity.

Annual support from the Friends helps shape the future of Jewish studies and sustains the Center as an influential, multifaceted enterprise at Harvard.

Some of the specific projects the Friends of the Center for Jewish Studies include:

  • Student research and supplemental study fellowships (undergraduate and graduate; summer, J-term and school year);
  • research-related expenses for visiting scholars;
  • public lectures and class presentations by distinguished scholars;
  • doctoral dissertation advising by specialized scholars from outside Harvard;
