Rice University Program in Jewish Studies

JEWISH STUDIES STUDENT ASSOCIATION

The Jewish Studies Student Association (JSSA) is a student-led organization. The JSSA strives to serve as a bridge between professors and students by facilitating communication between the Program in Jewish Studies and students who are interested it. By organizing events such as academic panels, movie showings, and study breaks, the JSSA hopes to enlighten Rice students about Judaism, Israel, and other related topics. We hope to expand our student board and develop our presence at Rice in the years to come!
