Jean & Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies Lecture Series


The Jean & Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies offers an ongoing lecture series, with the majority of programming taking place on the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus during the academic year. Lectures are also presented in the surrounding community. Topics include a broad range of current and historical Judaica topics, as well as emerging academic interpretations within Judaic Studies.

The largest lecture in the series is the David W. Belin Annual Lecture in American Jewish Affairs, which takes place in March of each year.

A significant annual off-campus lecture, the Padnos Lecture in Judaic Studies, is presented each autumn, customarily in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Often times exhibits, films, and performances are presented with the lectures, providing opportunities that extend beyond the boundaries of a lecture hall.
