In addition to the Harris Center for Judaic Studies, there are two other academic Jewish Studies programs in Nebraska: the Klutznick Chair of Jewish Civilization at Creighton University, and the Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Both are within approximately one hour driving distance.

The Harris Center has enjoyed a long-term collaboration with Creighton University‚Äôs Klutznick Chair of Jewish Civilization. For over a decade we have co-sponsored the annual Klutznick-Harris Symposium, which has been dedicated to a very wide range of topics in Jewish Studies, ranging from the history of Jewish music, philosophy, and food to attitudes to the environment and modern Jewish identity. Complete programs for the Klutznick-Harris Symposium are posted in the Events section of this site.
