Donors and Supporters

It would be impossible for EMU Jewish Studies to function without help from members of our community. Donors and Supporters provide much of the assistance for the Jewish Studies lecture series, class development, faculty research, and student scholarships.

EMU Jewish Studies has received an extraordinary gift of $10,000 for each of the past two years from an anonymous donor.
