The Ruderman Program for American Jewish Studies at Haifa University is the first and only Master’s program of its kind in Israel. Outstanding students and future leaders in Israel embark on a one-year program, which includes a 10-day educational tour in the US, which surveys the history and present-day character of the American Jewish community. The program promotes ongoing academic research in Israel on the topics of Jewish-American life, American society and the long-lasting and vital bond between the Jews of America, the State of Israel, and Israeli society. Each year, the program translates a book about American-Jewish history to Hebrew and publishes it for an Israeli audience, holds an annual national symposium for researchers in the field, and launches innovative initiatives such as an exhibition celebrating 100 years of contribution of the American Jewish community to Israel.
