1100 Students Register for Judaic Studies, Hebrew, Yiddish Courses at Two Colleges

Download PDF for this date

More than 500 students have registered for Brooklyn College’s new Judaic Studies program. In addition, almost 600 students have registered for Hebrew and Yiddish courses at the institution, a unit of the City University of New York. Some registrants could be accommodated only by the establishment of special additional sections. Many students were turned away when classes reached their attendance limits. Judaic studies may be taken toward full interdisciplinary undergraduate majors for Liberal Arts students leading to bachelor of arts degrees in Judaic Studies. The faculty coordinator of the program is Prof. Samuel Abrahamson, former president of the Faculty Hillel Associates and specialist in international education.
