End of Year Celebration 2016

Graduating seniors gathered with faculty and family members on May 3 at Brower Commons to celebrate and honor academic excellence and diverse achievements in the interdisciplinary field of Jewish studies. Ten students received awards which included several travel grants to study in Israel and in Poland.

The diversity of interests among students was readily apparent in this gathering. Several students received grants to study at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and an international study award  helped make it possible for a student to participate in the global field trip to Poland led by Professor Nancy Sinkoff. Grants were also given to students in the School of Social Work who participated in its winter study session in Israel. The special event also marked an exciting first: the first student to graduate from the Rutgers joint certificate program in Jewish studies and social work.  

A live musical performance by Rutgers alumnus Ami Yares (LC, 2003) and his band made the annual end of year celebration in Jewish studies particularly festive. Ami spoke to the group about how the foundation of his career in music, education, and Middle East peace advocacy was formed largely as an undergraduate in Jewish studies at Rutgers. The band played a combination of original and traditional folk songs, steeped in both Middle Eastern and American culture,

On May 2, 2017, over sixty faculty, students, family and friends, came together in the new Tanzman Hall of Jewish Learning to honor accomplishments in the field of Jewish studies and also to pay tribute to highly respected Hebrew Language coordinator and instructor Orly Moshenberg who retired at the end of the term after 27 years at Rutgers.

The Bildner Center and the Department of Jewish Studies presented awards to five students in recognition of their academic achievements in the field of Jewish studies. An award was also presented to a Rutgers student who will participate in DanceJerusalem in Israel in fall 2017. Graduating seniors in Jewish studies and two Master’s Degree students were recognized at the event.
