Starting this fall, graduate students at the Jewish Theological Seminary will have the chance to immerse themselves in the history, literature, culture and politics of Israel, thanks to a new partnership between JTS and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Students in the JTS Graduate School who pursue this option will spend a semester at the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism in Sde Boker. They will take
courses in Israel Studies, a growing subfield of Jewish Studies, while actively participating in Israeli culture and society through trips and community service. They’ll also have a chance to do research in the renowned David Ben-Gurion Archives.
