A sneak peek…


It’s been a full and exciting year at the Center for Judaic Studies.  Our community outreach programs are growing and attendance is building as we strive to present the latest programs that advance knowledge and enrich the understanding of Jewish life – past and present.

Student participation continues to thrive with all the Judaic Studies classes at capacity or overenrolled. Students electing Judaic Studies as a minor has tripled in only one year!

The 2005-2006 Academic year holds even more exciting programs and unique events – including:

  • Fall lecture series sponsored by the National Foundation for Jewish Culture
  • Kosher Wine Tasting featuring Tara Thomas of Wine & Spirits Magazine
  • Adult education programs through the new ALEPH Institute
  • The first university exhibition of Frederic Brenner’s photographic works from   Diaspora: Homelands in Exile with special presentations by Frederic Brenner
  • The return of the Film Series in February
  • Concerts with Tofhan Pinkasova, Charming Hostess and more!

These programs cannot happen without your support.  As our academic year comes to a close on June 30, please consider a donation in support of the events we have presented and the exciting year to come.  Contributions can be sent to:

What Defines a Sacred Space? For Major Religious Traditions

KBDI Channel 12 Wednesdays May 11& 18, 2005 at 9:30 p.m.

CJS and the Center for Religion and Public Life teamed up for a new Town Hall series that explored the concept of sacred space in Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism – what defines it, how is it used and the more complicated question, is it possible to share?  Hosted by the Center for Judaic Studies, Dr. David Shneer, the dynamic panel included:

Dr. Sarah Pessin – Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Judaic Studies at DU

Dr. Ginni Ishimatsu – Associate Professor of Religious Studies at DU

Dr. Mark George – Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at the Iliff School of Theology

Dr. Jacob Kinnard – Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the Iliff School of Theology

Dr. Liyakat Takim – Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at DU

If you missed the show, tapes - which includes both episodes -  are available at CJS for $20.  For more information please call 303.871.3020.
