Adventures in Jewish Studies

The Association for Jewish Studies Podcast

Adventures in Jewish Studies is a podcast produced by the Association for Jewish Studies, the largest learned society and professional organization representing Jewish Studies scholars worldwide. Created to fulfill the AJS mission of fostering greater understanding of Jewish Studies scholarship among the wider public, podcast episodes are designed take listeners on exciting journeys while exploring a wide range of topics, from the contemporary to the ancient, in ways that are informative, engaging, and fun. Launched in 2018, the Adventures in Jewish Studies series produces five episodes annually.

Each episode features the voices of AJS members as they share their expertise and research with listeners. Upcoming episodes include the origins of Jews themselves, Jews and art, and the 50th anniversary of Portnoy's Complaint. Funding for the series is provided by an anonymous foundation.
