Melton Center for Jewish Studies

The Ohio State University Melton Center was the first center for Jewish Studies at an American public university. The center develops, promotes and supports teaching and research in Jewish Studies by faculty and students; actively encourages the study of all aspects of the Jewish experience; and sponsors educational programs that serve the public. 

"Our Jewish Studies Program is one of the largest and most respected programs in the United States, and our faculty members are internationally recognized scholars in their fields. Students choose our Jewish Studies Program for the variety of courses, the many events and the vibrant Jewish life at Ohio State and Columbus."
