Gratz College Launches America’s First Master’s Degree in Antisemitism Studies

First Cohort to Begin Fall 2024

Gratz College Launches America’s First Master’s Degree in Antisemitism Studies
Gratz College logo

Gratz College logo

Gratz College is launching the first Master of Arts degree program in Antisemitism Studies in the United States in Fall 2024. This ground-breaking program will help fill the vacuum of knowledge about antisemitism across Jewish, non-Jewish, and governmental organizations responsible for generating policy to combat prejudice at a time of unprecedented Jew hatred. 

It will:

• Provide an academic home for those seeking to develop both a deep theoretical and practical understanding of antisemitism; 

• Help generate new and impactful research on the factors that contribute to growing antisemitism and test interventions that can successfully combat it; and

• Arm educators and practitioners with the most effective antisemitism pedagogy and programming. 

Through degree concentrations in teaching, advocacy and research, graduates of this program will be uniquely qualified for prominent careers in education, think tanks, government relations, public policy, and community organizations (Jewish and non-Jewish).  

Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro is eager to see this program take shape:  

“We’re seeing a dangerous rise in antisemitism, hatred, and bigotry across our country – and it’s more important than ever that Pennsylvanians be equipped with a thorough knowledge of our shared history and the skills to discern fact from fiction. Gratz College is already renowned for its Holocaust and Genocide Studies programs, and I am encouraged the College is expanding upon that work with a new Master’s degree in Antisemitism Studies. I wish the faculty, staff, and especially the inaugural class of Antisemitism Studies students, great success in their work.” 

The program is directed by Dr. Ayal Feinberg, antisemitism studies expert and Director of the Center for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights at Gratz College. The program boasts a distinguished interdisciplinary faculty from academia and leading public advocacy organizations. Despite its infancy, the degree has been endorsed by nearly one hundred scholars and public policy experts from around the world. Professor of Political Science at Kalamazoo College R. Amy Elman asserts, “With an emphasis on operationalizing knowledge, informed teaching and ethical advocacy, Gratz’s innovative graduate program fulfills a deep need in countering antisemitism.”

Gratz’s Antisemitism Studies program is also establishing ground-breaking partnerships with the world’s most prominent Jewish organizations and programs to combat antisemitism in the classroom, on campus, and in professional workspaces. In the first such partnership, Gratz and The Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History have joined forces to launch the National Education Fellowship on Antisemitism. The aim of this fellowship is to generate and assess paradigm-shifting middle and high school curriculum to reduce Jew-hatred and prejudice more broadly.

As an early adopter of online education, a 128-year history of Jewish learning, and home to the world’s largest graduate program in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Gratz is uniquely qualified to take on this necessary and overdue program.

On March 4, 2024, the master’s degree program will kick-off with a series of public lectures, including by scholars serving as affiliate faculty for the program. On April 2, 2024, Dr. Avinoam Patt, inaugural director of NYU’s Center for Study of Antisemitism and the Maurice Greenberg Professor of Holocaust Studies, will deliver a keynote lecture, titled, "Awake My People": Jewish Responses to Antisemitism in the Modern Period.” Additional talks will take place before the program officially begins in August.

Prospective students eager to start may apply now and take courses as early as March 2024 with electives in Antisemitism Studies already developed as a preview to the program. 

Gratz College is grateful to the Isidore and Penny Myers Foundation for generously supporting the launch of the Antisemitism Studies program. Jay Myers, Board Chair, shared: “The Isidore and Penny Myers Foundation, a family foundation guided by Jewish American values, sees great worth in educating future generations about the roots of Antisemitism, and by doing so, working to combat it. This degree program will create scholars who can devote their talent to meet this challenge. Our Foundation is proud to support this work and by so doing, meet our obligation to help repair the world.”

AeroGuard Flight Training Center, a renowned global leader in professional ab initio flight training, is proud to announce its selection by Air India to train the Indian flag carrier’s student pilots within its Fly High Cadet Pilot Program. This agreement demonstrates a significant milestone for AeroGuard and Air India as the two organizations share a commitment to high-quality flight training and supporting the growing airline industry in India. 

Within this new partnership, AeroGuard will train the next generation of pilots for Air India through a custom-developed course where students will obtain FAA licenses ready for DGCA conversion. Through AeroGuard’s high-quality curriculum, experienced instructors, expansive training facilities and capacity, AeroGuard will play a pivotal role in supporting the world-class airline’s aggressive growth plans. Following Air India recruitment and screening, pilot cadets will complete Ground School in India before training at AeroGuard’s flagship Phoenix, Arizona, campus that offers an ideal flight training environment with 350+ VFR days a year, extensive local airspace, and consistent student support. 

To support this high demand for its training, AeroGuard has been expanding its capacity and plans to train up to 2,000 student pilots across its three U.S. campuses. As part of this growth, AeroGuard recently placed a 90 aircraft order with Piper Aircraft, significantly increasing their current fleet of 100 planes, alongside plans to add a further 25 planes throughout 2024. Additionally, AeroGuard maintains a current population of 200+ instructors, with an additional 600+ U.S. students training to be instructors, as part of their path to 1,500 Hours for airline employment in the U.S.

AeroGuard Flight Training Center’s CEO Joel Davidson stated, “AeroGuard is honored to be selected by Air India as their preferred flight training provider for their Cadet Pilot Program. This partnership not only validates our commitment to delivering exceptional training for leading airlines worldwide, but also demonstrates our dedication to supporting the growth of the aviation industry in India. AeroGuard is excited to contribute to the success of Air India’s future pilots and establish long and successful careers for hundreds of student pilots.” 

As a leading airline in the rapidly expanding travel industry in India, this is a significant leap towards ensuring a consistent skilled pool of next-generation cadets and bridging the First Officer gap. By partnering with institutions like AeroGuard, Air India seeks to maintain stringent quality standards for cadet training while proactively securing future talent pipelines. Embracing its role as a pivotal player in India's thriving travel industry, Air India has embarked on a transformative journey. As the airline gears up for expansion, the demand for skilled pilots is poised to surge. AeroGuard's distinguished curriculum has been meticulously crafted to equip cadet pilots with the requisite skills, knowledge, and confidence to fulfill Air India's ambitious plans.

Black Women to Gather in Philadelphia for 2024 Annual Power Rising Summit, ‘For the Win!’

Black women from around the country are gathering at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in Philadelphia, PA, February 9-11, 2024, for Power Rising’s annual national summit. This year’s theme, “For the Win!”, will focus conversations on all the ways that black women can win in this moment — from our health to our communities, businesses, finances and our nation.  Plenary and workshop sessions will include conversations about a range of key issues black women are dealing with in our personal and professional lives. Topics will include black women’s leadership, reproductive justice, how to run for office, AI and increasing diversity in the tech sector, how to build wealth and common myths around investing and building financial freedom. Approximately 500 women and girls, of all ages, sexual orientations and gender identities, professional & educational backgrounds, and faiths are expected to attend. The summit began on Friday morning with an opening greeting from Power Rising Co-Convener Rev. Leah Daughtry with Musiq Soulchild closing out the weekend at Sunday brunch.

Founded in 2018, Power Rising provides a gathering place for Black women, from coast to coast, to come together and develop plans to build and maximize our personal and collective strengths. Our work is organized around five pillars: Business & Economic Empowerment, Culture & Community, Education & Technology, Health & Wellness, and Political Empowerment. Power Rising Action Fund, our c4 arm, engages in civic engagement and organizing on a nonpartisan basis; promotes awareness of and support for education regarding to strategies and best practices as it relates to community organizing and civic engagement; and promotes strategies that advance racial, gender and social justice. We carry out our work through annual gatherings, regional meetings, regularly scheduled webinars, and other organizing activities. Power Rising was birthed out of a retreat of the women of the Congressional Black Caucus, and our Organizing Committee of high-profile and frontline activists, businesswomen, and organizational leaders, representing the broad diversity of Black womanhood, have banded together to organize this annual gathering.

Uplifted Hearts Foundation Partners With the YMCA at Their Facilities in Houston, Texas, by Gifting 400+ Pairs of Brand-New Shoes and Sneakers for Houston Children
Uplifted Hearts YMCA Event

Uplifted Hearts Foundation and its founder Hanin Al Qoreishy partner with the YMCA Houston on Feb. 8, 2024 to provide 400 pairs of shoes to Houston children.

The Uplifted Hearts Foundation, a Houston-based 501c3 nonprofit that operates with a profound commitment to building stronger bonds within families and nurturing connections among child refugees and orphans, partnered with the YMCA at their Houston facilities on Feb. 8, 2024, by gifting 400+ brand-new pairs of proper fitting sneakers to Houston children. 

Uplifted Hearts founder Hanin Al Qoreishy has an amazing story of perseverance against all odds in migrating from a war-torn Iraq at the age of 12 to the US while navigating cultural and linguistic barriers, cultivating a strong work ethic, and this has driven her true passion for the foundation. Hanin is the Founder and President of Houston-based Legacy Insurance Advisors and dedicates her personal time to her foundation which is her true passion. Hanin was recently featured in the Houston Business Journal as a rising star in the Houston Business community and for the recognition of her efforts to give back to Houston children through her foundation.

The Uplifted Hearts Foundation firmly believes that a child’s relationship with their family serves as the cornerstone upon which their connection with the world is built. A strong and loving family environment provides the foundation for a child’s emotional well-being and their sense of self. It is from this safe and nurturing space that children learn about trust, empathy, and resilience.

The Uplifted Hearts Foundation has additional events planned in 2024, where we will be offering additional materials, donations, food, and/or special events that will truly help and impact Houston families to build these stronger connections among child refugees and orphans.
