Or check out the Chronological Index of educational, cultural and dialogue programs we've sponsored since the Office of Jewish Affairs was created in 1995. (Note: Jewish Affairs was incorporated into a new and broader Office of Religious and Spiritual Life in Fall 2010.)

Judaism and Interfaith Relations
Information about Jewish holidays, Judaism and other religions, and interfaith dialogue.

Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust
Educational programs, surveys, and our responses to some hate incidents on campus.

Israel and the Arab-Israeli Conflict
We've sponsored many educational and dialogue programs which offer models for respectful discussion
of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.

Black/Jewish and Inter-Ethnic Relations
OJA was founded in part because of conflicts between Jewish and African American students, so we've done many programs to build bridges between these two communities (and others).

Diversity in the Jewish Community
Jews come in all colors and sexual orientations, as do the performers and speakers we've brought to campus.

Miscellaneous
General information about the Office of Jewish Affairs, as well as some programs that don't fall neatly into any of the above categories.
