Responding to a series of articles in which Judaic Studies professors discuss their respective Jewish studies undergraduate programs, the author notes a common denominator of how relatively young are all the programs discussed. She posits that the prolliferation of Jewish studies in American universities in the past twenty-five years has been part of a broader recognition in American higher education of the need to expand the concept of the liberal arts curriculum to include cultures once deemed marginal to the American experience.
