We hope you’ll join us in welcoming David Ellenson to the role of Acting Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University. He will also serve as Visiting Professor in the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies.
As we welcome our new leader, we fondly salute our founding director, Ilan Troen ’63, who has led the Center since 2007. With tireless dedication, Professor Troen has made his vision a reality, advancing academic study of Israel worldwide and making Brandeis University a major hub for the still young field of Israel Studies. Professor Troen will continue teaching at Brandeis, and will always have a home both at the Schusterman Center, and at Brandeis University.
