September 29, 2015

The Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania is the only institution in the world devoted exclusively to post-doctoral research on Jewish civilization in all its historical and cultural manifestations. Located in its award-winning building on Philadelphia’s Independence Mall, the Katz Center was created in the fall of 1993 by the merger of the Annenberg Research Institute and the University of Pennsylvania.
