The Center for Jewish Studies
The Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies (CJS) at the Graduate Theological Union is a premier center for the advanced study of Jewish history, literature and culture. Classical and contemporary Jewish texts are studied in a collaborative and pluralistic atmosphere. Our graduates pursue careers in academia, the rabbinate, as well as educational and community service. In addition to our degree programs, CJS hosts dozens of academic symposia and lectures per year. These events play a critical role in Jewish life throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
