Download PDF for this date

The University of Detroit, a Roman Catholic institution, has introduced a program of Jewish studies under the direction of Dr. Shlomo Marenof, dean of the College of Jewish Studies here.

Rev. Paul F. Conen, the Jesuit dean of the university’s College of Arts and Sciences, who announced the new program, said that the studies will deal “not only with the special religious and cultural relationships which exist between Judaism and Christianity, but also with the broader themes of the history of Jewish contributions to contemporary civilization and the place of Judaism in the modern world.”
