Events and Programs
An exciting development for our Jewish Studies program is the “Legacy Heritage” grant that we have been awarded from the Associate for Jewish Studies.
This grant will provide $22,000 for public programming for the 2012-2013 academic year, enabling the college to showcase the valuable resources we have to produce Jewish Studies related events for everyone in the Lehigh Valley.
