Description of Department of Jewish Studies at Tulane

Beginning in the Fall of 2012 Jewish Studies will be a stand-alone department within the School of Liberal Arts.

About Jewish Studies

The Tulane program uses methods of history to gain accurate insights into the Jews' past; sociological analysis to find the larger patterns of Jewish behavior and social interaction; and the study of philosophy to examine the comprehensive understandings of humanity and nature proposed by Jewish thinkers.

The department’s emphasis is on the modern Jewish experience, in addition, language, literature and musicology are studied in order to explore the diverse cultural creations of the Jews and the method of social anthropology allows students to characterize Jewish religion and to define its impact upon the lives of its past and present adherents. Through these several approaches, Jewish Studies attempts to comprehend the Jewish experience and to examine the identities and ways of life that Jews have developed in order to make sense of the worlds in which they have lived.
