Welcome to the web site of the Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies at the University of Oregon. The Program was established in 1998 as the result of a generous gift from the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation of Portland.

The interdisciplinary Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies provides a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum in the history, religion, and civilization of the Jewish people, and offers two years of instruction in Hebrew language and literature. The program offers a Judaic Studies Major leading to a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree and a Judaic Studies Minor. At this time there are no graduate programs offered through the Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies.

The Harold Schnitzer Family Program in Judaic Studies also offers public lectures, brown bag seminars, and other events of campus wide and community interest.
