As we enter the 2022-2023 academic year, we are pleased to announce a variety of new developments in the Program in Jewish Studies at CU Boulder.

We are very excited to welcome two new members to Jewish Studies, Thomas Pegelow Kaplan, the new Louis P. Singer Endowed Chair in Jewish History, and Angela Watts, our new Manager of Finance and Business Operations.

Gregg Drinkwater has been named one of the inaugural recipients of the Association for Jewish Studies’s new Contingent Faculty and Independent Scholar Research Grants, which will support his project "Prelude to Pinkwashing: Homonationalism, Diaspora, and the Gay Jewish Embrace of Israel.” Prof. Drinkwater has also been appointed Associate Academic Director of the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections.

The Nonbinary Hebrew Project, co-created by Eyal Rivlin, is increasingly being integrated into university curricula across the U.S., as well as language-learning technology platforms, including Language Drops. Read about the Gender Inclusive Hebrew Language Conference, co-organized by Prof. Rivlin this past spring.
