The Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies at the Graduate Theological Union cordially invites you to celebrate its fifty years of scholarship, leadership, and public engagement.

The day will feature an academic conference with presentations by CJS alumni, students, and faculty, followed by a collaborative oral history of CJS. We will then honor those people whose vision and commitment have enabled CJS to thrive for this half-century. The day will conclude with a celebratory evening reception.
