Public Lectures

The Jewish Studies Public Lecture Series is now in its twenty-fifth year.
Throughout the academic year, renowned scholars from Europe, Israel and America deliver lectures on various Jewish topics, covering the range of Jewish history, philosophy, sociology, religion, culture, and Jewish/Gentile relations. These lectures are widely attended by students and faculty at CEU as well as members of the general public.  Many of the lectures can be found in the volumes of the Jewish Studies Yearbook.
