Brandeis University Dedicates Judaic Center; Has Biblical Garden

Brandeis University dedicated yesterday its Golding Judaic Center, one of three facilities in the new $2,500,000 quadrangle, which also includes a humanities building and an American Civilization Center. The Judaic Center, which will provide facilities for the university’s graduate and undergraduate programs in Near Eastern, Judaic and Mediterranean studies, is the gift of the family of the late Joseph Golding, a New York industrialist and his wife Dora.

The new facility contains a 150-seat lecture hall, classrooms and seminar rooms and faculty and administration office space. An outstanding feature of the Center is the Biblical Garden, exhibiting plants and herbs indigenous to the land and times of the Bible.
