On July 6-8, the National Association of Professors of Hebrew (NAPH) held its annual conference at Yeshiva University’s Beren Campus. The conference, co-sponsored by Stern College for Women and YU’s Center for Israel Studies, featured lectures on a wide range of topics related to Hebrew language, literature and culture and was attended by over 250 scholars, writers and educators.
With cultural, political, economic and military ties never stronger and more apparent between Israel and India, international leaders and scholars will convene at Yeshiva University for a two-day conference, entitled “Israel and India: A Relationship Comes of Age,” on March 30-31. In light of the recent tragedies in Mumbai, the conference will be dedicated to the memories of those who lost their lives in the attacks.
The Leonard and Bea Diener Institute of Jewish Law at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and the Rebecca Ivry Department of Jewish Studies at Stern College for Women will host an international conference, “Between Rashi and Maimonides: Themes in Medieval Jewish Law, Thought, and Culture,” November 21-23.
