For over twenty years, the Bildner Center has been a key resource in carrying out the mission of Rutgers University by linking the academic community and the public, and encouraging lifelong learning.
Our diverse programs range from the annual Rutgers Jewish Film Festival to public lectures, to free Holocaust education for public school teachers to enrichment opportunities for Rutgers students. The Center also has a national and international reach by hosting visiting scholars who contribute to intellectual life on campus and in the community.
As a non-profit institution, the Bildner Center depends on your generous support to provide these programs and to serve as an academic and community resource.
- The Bildner Center Fund supports a wide variety of lectures, mini-courses, and seminars offered to students and the public.
- The Rutgers Jewish Film Festival, now in its 22th year, features award-winning international dramas and documentaries that explore the Jewish experience. Filmmakers and scholars engage with the audience for lively post-screening discussions.
- Holocaust Education is mandated in the state of New Jersey for kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our free courses and workshops provide a toolbox of resources and information to help middle and high school teachers teach this difficult topic.
