Tauber Lectures

The Tauber Institute organizes numerous lectures throughout the academic year to keep Brandeis faculty and staff abreast of current research and trends in all fields of Jewish Studies. In addition, the Tauber Institute also organizes thematically-based lecture series designed to provide students and academics with a more in-depth look at a particular area of scholarly inquiry.
