The Taub Center for Israel Studies was established in 2003 with the support of the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation, to advance the study of Modern Israel: its recent history, society and politics, together with the history of the Zionist movement and the Yishuv.
NYU's pre-eminent position as a center of instruction and scholarship in Jewish history and thought, Hebrew language and literature, and Middle East Studies provides a natural setting for the development of Israel Studies. The Center is a part of the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at NYU’s Faculty of Arts and Science, which offers a range of undergraduate and graduate courses on Israeli history and society.
You can find a full listing of our public lectures and screenings on the Events page.
