We at TIJS are conscious of how far we have come over the past four decades and aim to chart an exciting course for future growth. We are proud of the honored place Jewish Studies holds in the Emory curriculum, but we also believe that TIJS has the potential to make an even bigger impact by further engaging students and scholars across disciplines, and by demonstrating how the insights of Jewish Studies can speak to the larger questions of human experience.

We hope that you will consider making a gift of support to TIJS to help us in our mission of teaching, research, and service to the community. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated. If you are a graduate or a community member who has benefited from our programs, consider making a gift in honor of faculty members who may have inspired you with their teaching or mentorship.

General Fund

The Rabbi Donald A. Tam Institute for Jewish Studies Fund supports the essential day-to-day activities of TIJS, including events, student experience enrichment, and community outreach.

The Brickman/Levin Fund for Graduate Students

The Brickman/Levin Fund in the Laney Graduate School provides top-off fellowships for excellent graduate students specializing in some area of Jewish studies. Newly-accepted graduate students are nominated by their departments for this fellowship. The fund honors the work of Dr. S. Perry Brickman and Arthur Levin in exposing and ending discrimination against Jewish dentistry students at Emory during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
