Center for Jewish Studies at U.C. Berkeley
We work closely with the Center for Jewish Studies at U.C. Berkeley frequently on our events, combining our mutual resources for the benefit of the Bay Area Jewish community. Our two organizations have a long history of sharing faculty, exchanging students, and planning joint initatives.
