UCSC Center for Jewish Studies Co-Directors’ Message:

THE SANTA CRUZ DIFFERENCE (continued from cover) Through our

many courses; our Minor and newly created Major in Jewish Studies; and public events like the Helen Diller Annual Lecture, we have succeeded in transforming Jewish Studies into one of the most exciting and visible programs at the university, one that other programs look to for inspiration and collaboration. Like all of the undergraduates at UC-Santa Cruz, our Jewish Studies students receive an extraordinary liberal arts education within the setting of a world-class research university. We serve one of the largest Jewish populations of any University of California campus, as well as thousands of other students from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives, many of

whom are keenly interested in questions of identity, in general, and what it means—and has meant over the centuries—to be Jewish, in particular.

While some universities cannot attract enough students to their Jewish Studies courses, our classes are frequently over-enrolled.

Professor Ari Kelman Named 2013 Helen Diller Annual Lecturer This spring, Ari Kelman, the recently appointed Jim Joseph Chair of Jewish Education at Stanford University and proud alum of Ari Kelman the University of California Santa Cruz, will give the Helen Diller Annual Lecture on Wednesday, May 8, 2013. Professor Kelman will speak on “Learning to be Jewish.” For most Americans, the phrase “Jewish education” summons images of 2

Hebrew School. But, Hebrew School, or even what we might call “formal Jewish education” amounts to only a very small percentage of where and how people learn to be Jewish. The landscape of Jewish learning might include Hebrew Schools, but certainly includes worship, film festivals, popular music, literature, home-based rituals (like Passover seders) and encounters with the news.  

Building on cutting edge research into educational cultures, Professor Kelman will explore the variety of ways in which people learn to be Jewish.

While many other Jewish Studies Programs emphasize graduate study, we believe that our biggest impact can— and should be—on undergraduate students, even as we train a small number of highly qualified doctoral students in Jewish history and literature. Over the years, an extraordinary number of students who have taken Jewish Studies courses have gone on to become rabbis and other Jewish professionals. More than ten have become professors of Jewish Studies, themselves, at top-tier universities and colleges. We are equally proud of the thousands of students—Jewish and non-Jewish—who have gone on to success in numerous other fields, equipped with a more nuanced knowledge of Jewish history and culture, Israel, and the Holocaust. The generosity and ongoing support of the Helen Diller Family Foundation has helped make Jewish Studies one of the most dyHelen Diller namic programs in the university. The highlight of the UCSC Jewish Studies calendar is the Helen Diller Annual Lecture, which brings world-class scholars to UCSanta Cruz to present their work on a Jewish theme to the campus and the wider community. Last year, the Helen Diller Annual Lecture was delivered by Chae Ran Freeze, an award-winning professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, who spoke on the experience of Russian Jewish women.

UCSC Chancellor Affirms Commitment to Baumgarten Chair and Jewish Studies Program

George Blumenthal

University of California, Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal welcomed supporters of UCSC’s Baumgarten Chair and Jewish Studies program to University House on September 23rd to offer a heartfelt endorsement, celebrate the legacy of Professor Murray Baumgarten, honor community leader Eleanor Hilberman, and thank donors to the Baumgarten Chair for Jewish Studies. Endowing the Baumgarten Chair is a major initiative of the UCSC campus-wide strategic plan for the future.

Chancellor Blumenthal: Thank you for your support of UC Santa Cruz’s distinguished program for Jewish Studies. This is such a point of pride for us! Our commitment to Jewish Studies goes back to the earliest days of the campus, and we’re still expanding. Today, we offer a minor and a new major in Jewish Studies—we’re the only public university in Northern California that does. The program has an extensive academic curriculum, and we’re building the research component. Think of the thousands of students over the years who have explored modern Jewish literature, European Jewish history, and the Holocaust because of this program. This is our legacy! I want you to know that this campus—I personally—am committed to growing this program. UC Santa Cruz has a large number of Jewish students—by some accounts, the highest percentage in the UC system: 17 percent, compared to 9 percent at UCLA. We enroll more than 1,000 students in Jewish Studies courses each year. Our History of Israel attracts nearly 100 students, and our Holocaust survey course enrolls nearly 300! As you know, our program has been nurtured for twenty years by faculty like Murray Baumgarten and Peter Kenez. Their effort was rewarded with a cornerstone gift from Helen and Sanford Diller in 1999. That gift created the Helen Diller Family Endowment for Jewish Studies. Since then, a community has grown to support this program. Scholars, students, donors, and foundations have joined together, and what a difference they’ve made. What a difference you’ve made!

The Baumgarten Chair will further anchor this now-mature, distinguished program. It will enable us to attract and retain scholars who will lead us into the future.

Your generous gift to Jewish studies helps to support outstanding students and our nationally recognized program. Checks made out to the UCSC Foundation and designated in the memo line for Center for Jewish Studies can be mailed to: UCSC Humanities Development Office HUM 1, Suite 503 1156 High Street Santa Cruz, CA 95064 Secure, online gifts can be made by going to the UCSC Jewish Studies website: In the lower right hand corner, select Giving. Enter a gift amount. Then click the “Designation” button and scroll down to Humanities, then Center for Jewish Studies. Easy! Call 831-459-4713 for a person who can assist you.

UC Santa Cruz appeals to students who want to make a difference in the world. I want you to know that you’ve made a difference here at UC Santa Cruz. You’ve had a lasting impact on this campus, and it’s an honor to say thank you. UCSC Center for Jewish Studies


L E V I AT H A N Celebrating Four Decades of Jewish Journalism at the University of California Santa Cruz Established in 1972, Leviathan Jewish Journal is the longest running student Jewish campus newspaper in the country.

Leviathan publishes articles on local Jewish culture and events, as well as national and international topics. Each issue of Leviathan is the result of a ten-week-long team effort, and staff members of Leviathan can earn two units of independent study credit through Stevenson College. Leviathan writers, illustrators, and production staff meet weekly at the Student Press Center to brainstorm content, review article drafts, discuss graphics and design issues. Today, Leviathan can also be accessed online at:

Among the many Leviathan staff writers who have gone on to distinguished careers are Tony Michels, now the George L. Mosse Associate Professor of American Jewish History at the University of WisconsinMadison, and Joshua Zimmerman, holder of the Zborowski Chair in Holocaust Studies at Yeshiva University. As part of our “Are We Still the People of the Book?� initiative, the Jewish Studies Program is collaborating with the staff of Leviathan and Stevenson College to host a 40th anniversary gathering in honor of the publication. On Sunday,

April 28, during Alumni Weekend, we will bring together former and current members of the Leviathan staff, alumni, and campus and community members, to explore the history and ongoing impact of Leviathan and its place within the broader world of Jewish writing. In conjunction with the event, we are digitizing forty years of the publication in order to create a complete online archive.

A Student’s View of Jewish Studies at UCSC

Zach Ragent

Zach Ragent:“After graduating from

UCSC, I spent the summer putting both my major and minor to good use. I played violin at the Mendocino and Marrowstone music festivals, and then traveled around Europe

with a friend for three weeks. While my friend and I stopped in plenty of places with few overt links to European Jewish history, I often found myself reflecting on a particular course, book, or paper from my time as a Jew-

ish studies minor. I appreciated the context these classes gave me when we did make stops at Jewish places and spaces like the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, the Synagogues of Rome and Florence, Shabbat dinner in a Florentine Chabad house, or especially when welcomed into the family home of a French Jew of North African descent.  Surprisingly often, I found myself called upon to use the Hebrew that I’d studied for the minor as well— it served as a Jewish lingua franca all across the continent.  Eliezer BenYehuda would have been thrilled, I’m sure!  Since returning, I’ve been working as a violin teacher for an after-school music program, and I am in the process of applying to graduate programs in violin performance.”

Our Vision for the Future of UCSC Jewish Studies:

“Are We Still the People of the Book?” Our vision for the future includes a strategic plan around the question “Are We Still the People of the Book?” At once a historical trajectory, a material object, a technological medium, and a metaphor, the Jewish Book is central to Jewish culture and has been for millenia. But how will it continue to be so in the age of the Internet and smart phones? As our future unfolds, we will explore the question, along with the issues and opportunities it raises, through traditional and digital conferences, lectures, student seminars, collaborative research projects, activities and publications. In the coming months, the “People of the Book” initiative will launch three major events: Professor Ari Kelman’s Diller Lecture on “Learning to be Jewish,” the 40th anniversary celebration of Leviathan, the University of California Santa Cruz student-run publication on Jewish issues, and a international conference co-organized by Murray Baumgarten to be held in Venice, Italy in June, 2013 called “The Jewish Book: Histories, Media, Metaphors.” The conference is collaboration between the University of California Santa Cruz and The Venice Center for International Jewish Studies, and colleagues at Ca’Foscari— The University of Venice. It will bring together participants from around the world to the city that invented the Ghetto and became the center of the Jewish book industry, including the publication of the first complete Talmud in 1516, known as the Bomberg Edition.

2013 | NO. 1


Jewish Cultural Studies at UCSC Many of the courses designed for UCSC’s Jewish Studies curriculum, are inherently interdisciplinary. They apply methods drawn from the disciplines of history, sociology, and anthropology to the analysis of works of literature. UCSC Jewish Comedy Course links culture and literature: During the 1950s, television pioneer Sid Caesar assembled a team of comic writers that included Neil Simon, Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, and Larry Gelbart. Caesar and his writers loved to insert scraps of Yiddish in their parodies of highbrow foreign films: characters named Gantze Mishpochah (Whole Family) and Gehakteh Leber (Chopped Liver) starred in a Japanese samurai saga, and a send-up of Italian Neorealist cinema was loaded with lines like “Whosa wea-

rin’ my gatkes”

(long underwear)? Recently an interviewer asked Gelbart—the author of A Mel Brooks

were young Jews. He replied: “I think it must have had something to do with the fact that many of us had parents who were old Jews.” The work of Sid Caesar and his team of collaborators is among the principal topics in a new course at UCSC, a senior seminar in the Literature Department entitled “Jewish Comedy.” With examples ranging from the classic works of Sholem Aleichem and Isaac Bashevis Singer to episodes of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, the course allows students to study the varieties of Jewish humor in their historical contexts. Why, the course asks, did the rueful humor of Yiddishspeaking immigrant Jews become the matrix of American comedy during the years after the Second World War? (Given the pervasive influence of Yiddish-inflected humor during the 1960s and 1970s, novelist Wallace Markfield spoke of “a mad rushin’ to the mama-lushen”!) In what respects is Jewish humor distinctive, and how does it reflect specific historical experiences? And what are some of the links between popular entertainment and literary achievement? Bruce Thompson, the creator of the course, finds inspiration not only in academic approaches to the sources of Jewish humor, but also in the work of artists like the brilliant New Yorker cartoonist Bob Mankoff.

Thompson’s seminar is the latest addition to a diverse menu of courses that reflect the varieties of Jewish cultural creativity over three millennia of Bruce Thompson historical experience and across the global Jewish diaspora: intensive studies of the Hebrew Bible and kabbalistic texts; courses on both ancient and modern Israel; surveys of modern Jewish intellectual history and Jewish travel narratives; and courses devoted to understanding Jewish literature in particular urban contexts (among them cities as diverse as Odessa, Prague, Venice, New York, Alexandria, Cairo, Tehran, and Baghdad). Summer Institute for Israel Studies promotes UCSC faculty-designed courses: Another strength of the UCSC curriculum in recent years has been its offerings in the emerging field of Israel Studies. Thanks to the generosity of the Schusterman Foundation, three members of the faculty—Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, Avi Tchamni, and Bruce Thompson—have developed new courses at the Summer Institute for Israel Studies at Brandeis University: courses on Israeli cinema, music, and history. These courses have become as popular among undergraduates as the many courses devoted to the literature and culture of the global Jewish diaspora.

Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and the creator of the television series M*A*S*H—why so many of the writers in Caesar’s workshop

Holocaust Studies at UCSC Advances New Leadership and Programs

Professor of History and Center for Jewish Studies Co-director Nathaniel Deutsch has been appointed to the Neufeld-Levin Endowed Chair in Holocaust Studies, following many years of dedicated service by Murray Baumgarten and Peter Kenez. We continue to be grateful to Anne Neufeld-Levin and her family for the generous gift that established this interdisciplinary endowed chair in 1995.

Peter Kenez

Professor Deutsch has also been named to the National Advisory Council of the Sousa Mendes Foundation (, dedicated to memorializing the heroic acts of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, a righteous gentile from Portugal who saved Professor Deutsch’s father, along with thousands of other refugees (including H.A. and Margret Ray, the creators of “Curious George”) during World War II. On October 14, 2012, Professor Deutsch joined Sousa Mendes’s grand-daughter, the mayor of Saratoga, the Portuguese Consul General, and a large audience at Congregation Beth David in Saratoga to honor

Michaeli’s work suggests children of survivors must navigate between the intimate legacy of their parents’ experiences and their own encounter—via books, films, and other sources—of the Holocaust as a historical event. As the last survivors pass away and lived memory of the event disappears with them, what special role—if any—should their children play in representing and interpreting the Holocaust? “Holocaust: The Destruction of European Jewry,” will once again be co-taught by Professors Baumgarten and Kenez in winter 2013. For the first time, they will be creating an online version of the course, which regularly attracts upwards of 300 students, as well as members of the public. Professor’s Kenez’s forthcoming book, The Coming of the Holocaust, which summarizes a distinguished historian’s reflections on the genesis of the Holocaust—how it was possible, and why it unfolded differently in different parts of Europe—is under consideration for publication by Cambridge University Press.
