Advanced Talmudic Study for Women Just Got More Advanced
The Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies (GPATS) at Stern College for Women will expand this fall to offer an intensive two-year senior fellowship to two program graduates. It will be the first program of its kind in the United States.
The AVI CHAI Foundation has renewed funding for The Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies at Stern College for Women for the fifth consecutive year. Begun in 2000, the two-year program, which was initiated and sponsored by an AVI CHAI grant, currently enrolls eighteen women. YU President Richard M. Joel has been instrumental in providing supplemental funding to ensure the program’s success in accommodating increasing student interest.
