EWCJS is pleased to announce Mr. Jesse Gamoran as the winner of our 2016 Leo Baeck Essay Award, with his essay entitled "The Munich Visiting Program, 1960-1972."
A tribute to Elie Wiesel
We call it Take a Teacher, Make a Friend. The essays and a poem by Elie Wiesel, here translated for the first time, are written by twenty-four out of the hundreds of students Elie Wiesel taught during his distinguished career at Boston University of nearly forty years. Center director Michael Zank and graduate assistant Leanne Hoppe, a graduate student of poetry and creative writing here at BU, collated and edited the contributions and designed this token of appreciation for our colleague, on the occasion of his eighty-fifth birthday. Copies of this first, limited edition will be on sale on September 22, when Elie Wiesel returns to BU for a conversation with Alan Dershowitz.
