Penn’s Katz Center is a postdoctoral research institute devoted to the advanced study of Jewish civilization. During each academic year, a new theme is chosen within Jewish studies, and the Center invites 15-20 leading scholars from around the world to research that theme together here in Philadelphia, collectively advancing the state of research on a given theme. The Center strives to make connections between these visiting scholars and the wider community, in part through a series of public programs connected with the annual theme. These are presented through hosting partners such as synagogues, libraries, and schools throughout the Philadelphia area.
