Support the Center

The Center is able to offer an array of programming because of the generosity of those who have donated financial support: major benefactors have been the Julius Blum Family, Dr. Norman Sollod, Bob and Carol Deutsch, the Western North Carolina Jewish Federation, the North Carolina Arts Council, and the Blumenthal Foundation. UNC Asheville provides direct and indirect support.

Gifts and donations (tax deductible) from interested members of the public are important as well. You can make a gift online to the Center by completing the University's Make a Gift form. In the Designation Comments box, please note that you would like to direct your gift to the Center for Jewish Studies.

And you can help by being a part of the Center's activities: by attending lectures, registering for courses, using the Judaica collection at Ramsey Library, being in active relationship. 

If you would like to be added to the Center's mailing list or need information about any of the Center's activities, please contact the director:
