Jewish Studies' good friend Mitchell Levin, who has been a valued supporter of our program as well as a donor and an alumni of the university, having received his BA in history from Tulane, has been working on a Jewish blog of dates, both historical and current, accompanied by short, informative factual essays that are updated daily. It can be useful in many contexts.

A bit more about Mr. Levin: he also received an MA in Human Resources Development from Webster University. He is a contributing editor and featured columnist for SEGULA, a magazine devoted to Jewish history and culture published in Israel. He has taught Bar Mitzvah and high school age students. For five years, he has led the weekly adult education class at Temple Judah. He is a self-reported autodidact with a life-long interest in history and Judaica. His Jewish experiences have covered a wide spectrum from Classical Reform to the Lubavitch. Having spent his adult life in small Southern and Midwestern towns, he is an example of a teacher who has learned because of and from his students.
