Working Papers: The Donna Sudarsky Memorial Series

The Donna Sudarsky Memorial Working Papers Series showcases the work of HBI Scholars-in-Residence.  As part of their residency, each Scholar submits a working paper reflecting the work they completed while at the HBI.  The papers demonstrate the variety of ways that our scholars further the HBI mission to develop fresh ways of thinking about Jews and gender worldwide.
