The Straus Center is dedicated to bridging an immersion in Torah study with a formative academic experience.
The mission of the Straus Center is to help develop Jewish thinkers and wisdom-seeking Jews by deepening their education in the best of the Jewish tradition, exposing them to the richness of human knowledge and insight from across the ages, and confronting them with the great moral, philosophical, and theological questions of our age.
