Maurice and Marilyn Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies

 

The Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, founded in 1980, is a preeminent center for the social-scientific study of contemporary Jewish life. Faculty and staff from a number of disciplines, along with graduate and undergraduate students, conduct a broad range of studies of Jewish life that inform scholarly understanding of contemporary Jewry and influence Jewish communal policies. The center's recent work includes path-breaking studies of Jewish education and Jewish identity.

In recent years, the Cohen Center has extended its reach by becoming the home to two new research-and-training institutes -- the Steinhardt Social Research Institute and the Institute for Jewish Philanthropy and Leadership. Steinhardt and the Institute for Jewish Philanthropy and Leadership share the Cohen Center's dedication to understanding contemporary Jewry and making scholarship available to academics, students, and policy-makers.
