Carleton University’s Max and Tessie Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies promotes inquiry into all aspects of the Jewish experience—from ancient times to the present. Its location in Ottawa means the centre can readily connect with parliamentarians, public servants, diplomats, NGO’s, international organizations and the national media, as well as other academics and the broader community.

Donations to the Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies support all of our programs and allow us to develop new online programming for students and the community in all areas relating to the study of Jewish culture, practice, and history. These include supporting online teaching for credit courses as well as through free public workshops and seminars, our annual student colloquium (this year on Zoom), and a full calendar of online public lectures by international scholars.

By supporting this fund, you are supporting the Centre’s ability to respond to the challenges of the current pandemic, support students, educate about Anti-Semitism, and respond to new and exciting opportunities to bring world class Jewish Studies programming to Carleton and Ottawa.
