FLUSHING, NY, October 1, 2004 — The Center for Jewish Studies at Queens College will present a series of lectures, music and comedy performances, and film during October. As the research and outreach arm of Jewish Studies on campus, the Center promotes Jewish education, scholarship, and culture outside the formal classroom setting. Serving as a bridge between the academic program and the community, the Center’s wide array of extracurricular events makes it a preeminent Jewish intellectual and cultural resource for the entire region.
Through its imaginative programming, the Center seeks to engage the College and general public in Jewish education and culture; foster Jewish learning in the community; publish and disseminate scholarly proceedings to lay people and scholars; promote academic community among students and faculty; and encourage and sustain pedagogic and scholarly activities of the faculty and students within the Jewish Studies Program at Queens College.
