Academic Visitors

The Center for Jewish Studies sponsors Visiting Professors and Lecturers in a variety of academic disciplines to supplement our course offerings in Jewish studies.
We also host several research scholars each year:

  • Harry Starr Fellows in Judaica: a group of 5-7 scholars (from post-doctoral fellows to senior faculty) in a particular field of Jewish studies for a semester or a year to conduct full-time research at Harvard
  • Daniel Jeremy Silver Fellow: for an active congregational rabbi to spend a semester conducting full-time, independent research at Harvard
  • Visiting Scholars, Associates, and Research Associates in many areas of Jewish studies to come to Harvard to conduct independent research at Harvard
