Twenty years ago, UW–Madison was the only major university in the country without a Jewish Studies program. That changed with the establishment of the Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies, the introduction of a Certificate in Jewish Studies in 1995, and finally, in 2001, a Major in Jewish Studies. Today, the Center for Jewish Studies has over 250 alumni of our major and certificate programs. You are one of a number of pioneers who have made the Center for Jewish Studies at UW one of the best in the country. And you are part of a generation that understands the rich intellectual and historical tradition that serves as the foundation of Jewish culture, and which informs your role as a citizen in a globalized world.
