I will be attending Yale Divinity School this fall to study Second-Temple Judaism, an opportunity for which I am infinitely grateful. My majors in Jewish Studies and Classics made this a natural decision, burgeoned by the excellent professors and invaluable experiences I have had at the U of I. I look forward to the future, and most of all to refining my language skills and research interests under the guidance of giants in the field.
Congratulations Aria (2017 Filler Award Winner)!
Filler Award winner and Jewish Studies Minor Joshua Altschuler is graduating (congratulations!!!) and will be joining the Institute for Southern Jewish Life. Here is what Joshua says:
As an Education Fellow for the Institute for Southern Jewish Life, I will be traveling to synagogues throughout the south to develop social programming, advance ritual life, and implement the organization's educational curriculum. ISJL Fellows are offered the valuable opportunity to intimately shape how communities, particularly children and young adults, practice and find meaning in their Jewish identity.
