“Judaism represents the roots of the collective tree from which the branches of countless faith communities have emerged throughout the millennia. Learning about others helps us to learn more about ourselves.”
– Rabbi Judy Schindler
Queens University of Charlotte offers a minor in Jewish studies which is housed in the Philosophy-Religion Department. With courses across disciplines and connected to our general education program, Jewish Studies at Queens examines Jewish identity, culture, and beliefs in a broad range of courses covering history, political science, international affairs, religion and theology, ethics, philosophy, sociology, pop culture and more.
