This annual seminar, held in the summer, is designed for professors, doctoral students, scholars, and clergy interested in historical topics related to issues of ethics, religious leadership, and the role of different religious communities during the Holocaust and the implications of this history after 1945.
Focusing on a particular theme or historical aspect, each seminar includes special presentations by experts in the field; a review of curricular resources, new research, and publications; and an introduction to the Museum’s resources for scholars.
The seminar topic and dates are announced in the winter. Faculty and qualified doctoral students from all academic disciplines are invited to apply, as are clergy and non-clergy professionally engaged in interreligious work. The Mandel Center covers the cost of direct travel to and from participants’ home institutions and Washington, DC (up to but not exceeding $700), as well as lodging for the duration of the seminar.
