Taube Center for Jewish Studies

Taube Center for Jewish Studies Welcome to the official page of the Taube Center for Jewish Studies at Stanford University The Taube Center is committed to sharing the best of Jewish Studies research and artistic creativity with its students and the larger community.

Our lectures and programs cover the breath of Jewish experience, from biblical archaeology and the Talmud to contemporary popular culture and current events. Many feature renowned scholars, creative writers and artists; others introduce minds that are up-and-coming. Unless indicated otherwise, all our events are free and open to the public (with free parking on campus after 4 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends). In an effort to reach into the community, we've also arranged for a few events to be off campus, organized in collaboration with partner institutions. Learning should be a life-long experience. We invite you to deepen your understanding of the Jews and their culture, or to challenge yourself intellectually if Jewish Studies is new to you, by joining us for an enriching year of ideas and creative expression. We are thankful to the supporters who have made these opportunities possible.
