The Center for Jewish Civilization (CJC) is an interdisciplinary teaching and research unit in the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. The CJC specializes in subjects ranging from American-Middle Eastern foreign policy as it pertains to Israel, to Holocaust and genocide studies, to Jewish-Catholic relations both past and present, to Jewish literature, culture, and religious expression. Judaism is examined as a religion and as a civilization in dynamic dialogue with other peoples and polities.

Multimedia: Visit PJCMedia, where serious scholarship assumes a visually compelling digital form... featuring videos, blogs and images from the students and faculty of the Center for Jewish Civilization. PJCMedia is a place where Judaism is refracted through the prism of our team’s idiosyncratic worldview. (You may also access audio and video from past events.)
