The Friends of the Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies

Friends of the Y&S Nazarian Center are partners in our mission to expand education and scholarship about modern Israel. Annual gifts from the Friends help us to promote a deeper understanding of Israel's complexity, diversity, and multi-faceted nature, and its relations with its neighbors, the U.S. and the world.

Donors at the $250+ level may join The Friends and have special opportunities to learn from distinguished scholars and attend exclusive events. You may pay your contribution each year, or become a sustaining member by making a monthly, recurring payment.

  • permanent and visiting faculty to enrich our course offerings for undergraduate and graduate students
