Student Programs

The Bildner Center hosts various extracurricular programs for Jewish Studies students and enriches Jewish Studies classes through the support of class trips and in-class guest speakers. The Center sponsors special lectures, educational programs, and cultural events for Rutgers students, and supports various programs offered by Rutgers Hillel and other student organizations on campus.


The Center has been instrumental in raising funds for awards for Jewish Studies majors and minors. These competitive awards are distributed by the Department of Jewish Studies in an annual ceremony to which the students’ families, faculty and donors are invited. Awards are also offered to students who want to pursue academic study or research in Israel.
