MA Modern Jewish History

History has always been a favorite of mine. My father, who is a graduate of Revel and RIETS as well, instilled in me the importance of ‘binu shnos dor vador’ (remember bygone days) written in our Torah in Deuteronomy 32:7. Analyzing how our forefathers lived and reacted to their surroundings in times of both peril and peace inspired me to seek a deeper understanding of the Jewish experience.A few of the highlights at Revel have been the warm interactions with professors. Encountering world-class scholars on a personal level is quite exciting. I learned many different approaches to history from the best in their fields.
