Taking Note: 20 Years of Scholars and Scholarship at the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies, 1993–2014, A Roundtable Discussion

This event celebrated and reflected on two decades of Jewish learning at the highest level as conducted at Penn's Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies. We convened a lively, interactive panel of thought provoking scholars to contemplate the impact and meaning of the academic enterprise of Jewish studies, its relevance to the Jewish world, the university, and beyond. What have we achieved? What are the stakes and import of the secular Torah of academic Jewish scholarship? And what is yet to be accomplished?
