City of Knowledge

Make Portland a City of Jewish Knowledge

Donate to PSU Judaic Studies

"Judaic studies gave me a better knowledge of Jewish history, literature, cultures, religion, and even language. Today, I want more out of my education and future."

Megan Dyer '10, Judaic Studies
Currently pursuing graduate studies at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Please join the PSU Judaic Studies City of Knowledge Circle and enable more students like Megan to pursue excellence in Judaic Studies.

Your gift will help send more students to Israel, grow resources for teaching and research, and build the collection of Jewish and Israel Studies materials in the University Library.

Yes, I want to join the City of Knowledge Circle to strengthen Judaic Studies in Portland!
