Stahl Center approved for second year
Sam and Helen Stahl Center's application for a second year of funding from the Legacy Heritage Jewish Studies Project was approved by the Association for Jewish Studies. The second and final year of the grant brought $11,000 for public programming in 2012-2013, to accompany matching funds already secured.
The theme for the series was "Roots & Restlessness: Jewish Lives in the Arts," and featured lectures, readings, an art exhibit, and a concert. All of the events in the series were part of the Year of the Arts events as well, and the support of the Peck School of the Arts was instrumental to making this application possible.
The project promoted sustained Jewish Studies programming in mid-sized and smaller cities and to foster relationships between scholars and the wider communities in which they work. UWM’s Jewish Studies program was one of just four nationwide to be awarded the grant for the coming year.
