Welcome to the blog of the McGill Department of Jewish Studies.

We hope this blog will serve as a useful resource for students, faculty, and the broader community to better connect with one another and find out about all the great things going on around the department.

There is indeed a lot going on. From the many speakers and musical performers who visit every year, to the typically fascinating academic work done everyday by Jewish Studies students and faculty, the department is a dynamic and interesting place. Too often we all get wrapped up in our own little worlds and projects, and neglect to realize the potential of the Jewish Studies community at McGill.

This blog hopes to offset that tendency. We hope you’ll keep coming back to get the latest news on what’s happening in the department, and hope you’ll share with us if you’re working on something interesting.
