uToronto's Centre for Jewish Studies launches community campaign

October 26, 2012

Earlier this month, the University of Toronto's Centre for Jewish Studies launched a public campaign with a $5-million gift from the Tanenbaum family that will support students, fund new programs for the institution and the greater community, and support day-to-day operations. At the campaign launch, uToronto's arts and science dean said the university has identified more than $36 million in aspirations to advance Jewish studies. Partnering with the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, the community campaign aims to raise a minimum of $18 million. The centre has also received a $1-million gift from Roz and Ralph Halbert through the UJA Federation's Community Campaign. The donation builds on the Halberts' support of academic programs that foster collaborative research between scholars at uToronto and those at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. uToronto Faculty of Arts & Science News
