Support Us

Everything the Katz Center does to advance new research—its support of scholars and students, its efforts to build bridges between American, Israeli, and European scholarship, and its mission to share scholarship with the broader community—depends on the support we receive from generous-hearted people who recognize the importance of what we do.

There are multiple to support the Katz Center.

One way to support the Katz Center, and to expand one's own intellectual horizons at the same time, is by joining the "Friends of the Katz Center." The support of our friends helps the Katz Center connect new research and ideas to the broader community. Read more

Beyond becoming a Friend, it is also possible to support the mission of the the Katz Center in more specific ways, including:

  • Directly support scholars from around the world and connect them to other scholars from America, Israel, and Europe by establishing a named fellowship that will support their research.
  • Help build Penn’s treasured Judaica collections.
  • Ensure the continued vitality of the Jewish Quarterly Review, the oldest journal of Jewish studies in the English language and also one of the most innovative.
  • Support collaborative projects and public scholarship that aim to connect scholars to one another, or that seek to enlist research for the benefit of the larger community.

A gift to the Katz Center can be a meaningful way to honor a loved one, and may be tax-deductible. For further information, please email Steve Weitzman at or Carrie Love at or call us at (215) 746-1356.
