Research

Our faculty are active in many different areas of research, ranging from uncovering new archeological discoveries from the Maccabean era to examining the evolution of modern day Judaism. The Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies is proud to facilitate and support these diverse and rich projects. Students are encouraged to explore these research areas and become involved with projects. EWCJS frequently holds events related to these research projects, which can be found on our events page.
