Jews in Higher Education
It is without
dispute to say that Jews care about education. One recent report
sponsored by Hillel, the organization for college students,
listed twenty American universities where Jews made up one third
of the enrollment. Only two of these schools were directly
“Jewish” universities, and one was first established by the
Methodist church. In addition, Jews played a part in founding
many of the institutions serving students today.
At the June 15
Shabbat, Madrikha Beverly will present some history and
background of Jews in higher education in the U.S. Then members
will discuss their own experience as Jewish students. The
program will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the Encinitas Community
