Brandeis University Establishes Center to Study Jewish Women

Brandeis University has announced its intentions to establish a center for the study of Jewish women and has stated that singer/director Barbara Streisand will serve as the center’s honorary chairwoman. Hadassah, a 385,000-member Jewish women’s group, plans to fund the International Research Institute on Jewish Women with a $1.5 million grant. The group has also agreed to find another $6 million in funding in order to create a permanent endowment for the center. The institute will not offer classes to students but will concentrate on research.
