Mission
The Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center (JSC) in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College reflects the legacy and heritage of the college, its tradition of educating New York City immigrants, its diverse population, and its special relationship to and place within Manhattan.

The JSC is uniquely positioned to take advantage of Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business, School of Public Affairs, and Weissman School of Arts and Sciences as well as the Baruch Performing Arts Center. The JSC is dedicated to teaching and informing the Baruch community and public about the history and experiences of Jews in America, specifically in New York City. Public programs, courses, events, and campus activities will focus on the Jewish immigration to New york City, and address some of the biggest issues and challenges currently facing today's American Jewish community -- Jewish philanthropy, Jewish business ethics, Jewish politics, Jewish identity and continuity, and the changing face of American Jewry.
