"Misunderstanding arising from ignorance breeds fear, and fear remains the greatest enemy of peace."

Leston B. Pearson

Classroom learning is the cornerstone of the Glazer Institute’s efforts to reach students, change perceptions, and expand worldviews. Since the scope of Jewish Studies is interdisciplinary by nature, courses are taught by Seaver faculty from a wide range of departments, including Religion, History, Film Studies, and International Studies. We are currently offering:

  • Religious and Cultural Life Cycles around the World
  • Holocaust History, Memory, and Representation
  • Jewish Cultures around the World
  • Abrahamic Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in Comparative Perspective
