Why do we need financial gifts?

In order to build a space for rigorous academic scholarship on Israel, we rely on gifts from diverse donors and foundations.

In just ten years, since its founding in 2008, the Schusterman Center has measurably advanced and expanded the field of Israel studies. And now more than ever, Israel requires scholarly inquiry of the highest caliber.

The center is able to serve as a polestar for the finest professors and students in Israel studies thanks to the support of individuals and institutions who value informed, enlightened, high-impact scholarship in the field.

Donations will:

Expand  our Summer Institute for Israel Studies

Sponsor  doctoral students and post-doctoral scholars, and

Publish  groundbreaking books and articles in the field of Israel studies
