Forum Response

By Charlotte Elisheva Fonrobert

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2006

Responding to a series of articles in which Judaic Studies professors discuss their respective Jewish studies undergraduate programs, the author asserts that the story of the academic field of Jewish studies is a success story. The author identifies two topics for which further exploration is needed: the interdisciplinary nature of Judaic studies, and the question of how dependant the field is on the Jewish identities and commitments of its students and practitioners.
