The Ruderman Program for American-Jewish Studies is offered as a master’s program. It covers a range of issues pertaining to Jewish-American life, American society and the long-lasting and important bond between the Jews of America, the State of Israel and Israeli society. The program includes a 10-day field trip to the United States. During the trip students will meet Jewish-American students and Jewish leaders, visit various museums and attend lectures by prominent members of the local community. The program caters to outstanding students who seek to expand their grasp of American-Jewish life and who want to take part in a unique academic and intellectual experience. Participants must have a strong command of English.
Toward the end of June, students will take part in a field trip to US. During the trip students will attend lectures on American-Jewish life as well as meet Jewish students and local leaders. The trip will include visits to museums and other excursions. Since the trip is fully funded by the Ruderman Program, students will not be asked to pay any additional fees. However, participants must have proper health insurance for the duration of the trip, a valid B1 visa and a valid passport.
The number of places is limited. Applicants must demonstrate academic excellence and pass an interview.
