Keeping up with Jewish Studies at Pitt

We still post here--mostly during the school year and mostly announcements of programs, scholarships, jobs, internships, etc. that come our way.
Best way to keep up with the program--especially course offerings and our events--is to "like" our Facebook page.  If you're not on Facebook (really?), follow the blog and you'll notice all the facebook postings along the right side.
We're also on Twitter:  @PittJSP if you like that.
