Bringing the Richness of a Great World Culture to the Heartland

Established in 2009,The Natan & Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel & Jewish studies’ mission is to create, coordinate, and promote an interdisciplinary program focusing on teaching and scholarship in Jewish and Israeli history, politics, culture and society. Our primary goal is to expand knowledge about Judaism and Israel, both on university campus and in the broader Nebraska community, and we seek to promote and facilitate collaborative scholarship (teaching and research) with academic institutions in Israel.
