The Harris Center for Judaic Studies promotes and supports scholarship in Jewish Studies at UNL. Founded in 1991 with an emphasis on educating the people of the Great Plains region about Jewish civilization and the nature and history of anti-Semitism, today the Harris Center serves as a hub of academic activity and public programming.

The Center administers an interdisciplinary minor in Jewish Studies, support for undergraduate and graduate research, and a scholarly community for faculty working on topics related to Jewish Studies, broadly conceived. We also offer a wide range of public lectures and conferences.
